Reflection, the word, the action, and its layered meaning hold a fascination for the team at OKHA. They have experimented and explored the concept of reflection and seeing; they have distorted it, abstracted it, and skilled artisans have polished, oxidised and etched materials such as copper, brass and timber to create ‘Looking Glasses’ that go beyond just being visual echoes.The result is an array of bespoke items, celebrating the notion of reflections, to fit into any contemporary setting. Let’s take a look at what they have on offer: Mirror Design | Port The Port (Portal) mirror is reminiscent of ripples on water. Two layers of glass are stepped back from each other and ringed by polished copper bands, the depth of which is reflected, and exaggerated in their reflection. As with ripples on water, the stepped glass gently distorts the reflection. The circular mirrors are recessed into a steeply bevelled oak surround, further enhancing the sense of depth. Mirror Design | Black Rain The title of Black Rain derives from the image of a winter’s rain where torrents of rain, fall at an angle driven by harsh winds; grey tinted mirror conjures dramatic wintry days. The panes of mirror are raked and angular, their reflection distorted by the varying surface levels. Mirror Design | Grid A bottomless black glass box clad in copper and from which piston-like cylinders protrude. Grid has a minimal, maximal attitude, it is precise and machine-like, it is simplicity, and a carnival of reflections and distortion. Mirror Design | Tribe As its name states, Tribe’s roots are firmly grounded in traditional African motifs and artistic expression. Raised mirrored shards are interspersed by vibrantly coloured segments. Each element reflected in the others surface. Mirror Design | Solar Solar takes inspiration from Japanese Zen Gardens and Solar and Lunar Eclipses. Simple, pure geometry, backlit overlapping forms and attention to materials and surfaces create an intriguing visual narrative. Mirror Design | Reflect Cubist in design, inspiration and attitude, Reflect is a myriad of geometric planes at opposing angles that disconnect and reassemble the mirror image in the same way that Picasso and Braque re-imagined their own visual reality.
