WAVERE

FLECTOR

–   Capturing light and other kind of waves from space.

The ‘Wave Reflector’ is an object with the function of visually rearranging the space around the object. It offers the opportunity to experience the surroundings in another way by capturing light and other kind of waves from space and reflecting them back to the spectator in a rearranged way.

–   The mirror has given us the opportunity to look at the world in a different way.

The mirror as a material is often used to give a modern or futuristic look to an object, interior, or architectural structure. However, people have been fascinated or even obsessed by mirrors for centuries. From Biblical stories to the fairytales of Grim, and from Archimedes Solar Ray to a solar park. The mirror has given us the opportunity to look at the world in a different way and discover new things with the help of this new perspective. The mirror itself is nothing we have not seen before, but it plays a fundamental role in discovering things that we have not yet seen. The inventions of the microscope and the telescope were only possible due to the presence of the mirror. The mirror shows us the smallest, the biggest, and everything in between.

–   The movement is inspired by a kaleidoscope.

The wave reflector is a reflective object that rotates around its own axis by means of a motorized system. The movement is inspired by a kaleidoscope. The object is an abstract way of communicating on a complex scientific matter. During the research we were fascinated by the James Webb space telescope. Something that costs billions will be used to look for things we don’t even know exists.

–   It can serve as an eye catcher at events or be a permanent addition to any interior.

The wave reflector is part of a bigger research we did for an upcoming show, but was presented for the first time in Milan during Salone del Mobile 2018 at Bar Anne. The Wave reflector was intentionally build as a show element but would certainly not be out of place in a large entrance hall of a building. It can serve as an eye catcher at events or be a permanent addition to any interior. The scale of the object can be adjusted on request to perfectly suit a certain space.
