Obei Obei is a collection of wall mirrors with shapes inspired by window frames and details of iconic buildings in Milan designed by Gio Ponti, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, BBPR and other great italian architects.
The structure of the mirrors is made of different texturized glasses that normally were used for domestic doors and entrance hall doors from 20's till 50's
On this base are stucked and arranged colored mirrors that, as photographic filters, create a gentle color while reflecting. All the edges are hand bevelled by qualified craftsmen.
Projects and studies that milanese architect and designer Nanda Vigo has developed over 70 years on the use of printed crystals and mirrors respect to the theme of light refracted and of transparency, have been a stimulus and a challenge in the use of the materials of the project.
