BLADE Mirrors Are Polished to Perfection
View Slideshow

Arnaud Lapierre Design Studio’s duo of BLADE tabletop mirrors are downright eye-catching. The signed, limited-edition of eight mirror-polished stainless steel sets are inspired by the refined blades of Japanese Wakizashi swords. Formed into a sheet by an auto body builders’ stamp, two individual stainless steel pieces are welded together before being polished for hours, both to smooth the edges and create that brilliantly mirrored surface. In the end, the tabletop mirrors lie halfway between beauty and function, strong yet delicate in their sculptural aesthetic.
