The Miroir Mono Appears to Pull Down on its Gorgeous Wooden Frame

There is an apparent fluidity to the Miroir Mono that you don't typically see in objects made from timber or this type of flattened glass. The former material tends to be quite stiff while the latter is incredibly brittle.

Grégoire de Lafforest really manipulated the American walnut in strips as arc-shaped pieces that seem to warp outwards into a smooth concave surface. This beautiful wooden backing has been crafted with two perfectly semicircular ends and a stretched-out middle. It almost looks as though the Mono Mirror was once fixed into the wall towards the top of its frame, only to have gradually slumped over time beneath the weight of the reflector, causing the timber to pull.
