$10,960per item

About

1. Product description: The “Meteor” wall mirror’s frame consists of 2 different parts, the inside part is accomplished by an artisan who smashes a brass plate to get this wrinkled effect. The outside brass plate part is hand-polished for hours until its shine is in perfect condition. In the end, the brass is protected with a high-end anti-stain varnish to prevent oxidations. Bessa prides itself on creating handmade functional art furniture built to order by highly skilled Portuguese artisans. 2. Inspiration: People all-over the world share different beliefs about meteors and meteorites. Every ancient civilization venerated these phenomena and related them to omen, sharing the belief that the meteors are extraordinary. Even today, we allow ourselves to be seduced by the mystery and beauty that surrounds meteors. We have all witnessed, on clear nights, the fleeting passage of a Meteorite. This dazzles us every single time and we keep forever these passionate memories! The meteor mirror is inspired by these unique events, capturing the moment that a meteor hits the earth in the shape of a crater. 3. Product Dimensions: W 120cm (47.25"), H 120cm (47.25"), D 13cm (5.12") 4.

Designer/ Builder: This sculptural wall mirror was designed and created by the artist and designer Joao Bessa, founder of Bessa. 9. Installation/ cleaning and care: Easy to install. The wall mirror doesn´t need any assembling, it just needs to be taken out of the box and to be installed on the wall. Easy to clean.
