Phillippe Starck designed “L’Oreille Qui Voit” Mirrors for a hotel in Brazil and they are now being manufactured for you to purchase by xO. These designs are not strictly speaking retro, but the fluid distorted shape has clearly been influenced by surrealism, wihch is made especially clear in the surreal photos of the mirrors.
The name means “The Ear that Sees” because, aside from looking like Dali’s melting clocks, they are shaped like a human ear. The mirror comes in five sizes, ranging from 50cm high to 190cm high, and in a choice of silver leaf or black lacquer finish.
Of course, Starck designs come with a hefty price tag, with the smallest mirror in the range costing just under £1,000 and the largest just under £2,000. Made in Design will have the mirrors available in September.
