Concave Convex Mirror
by Dean Norton

Mischa Baka

Concave Convex Mirror has been created for the Alt Material exhibition, part of NGV's Melbourne Design Week 2020.

The framework of Concave Convex Mirror is made of mild steel spun over a custom timber mould, demonstrating the materials ability to form under pressure without fracture.

The brief was to design an object of use in response to the theme ductility, exploring materiality and fabrication, reimagining our relationship with a ductile material and its adaptability.

Concave Convex Mirror is an illusion piece, demonstrating movement within a brittle, non-ductile material, challenging the viewers perception of form when viewed from different angles.


This project has been longlisted in the homeware design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
