The Italian designer Fabio Meliota created a series of geometric shovel-shaped mirrors for the furniture company 'da a.' The beautiful mirrors deviate from the traditional designs, offering consumers a long stem, with a reflective, geometric surface. According to the artist, the shovel shape serves a "tribute to artist Joseph Beuys, who’s actions of digging furrows into the earth to sow seeds are well known."
The mirrors are available in three different forms, including a metal with a matte black, bronze and brass finish. In addition to paying tribute to an artist, the shovel shape serves as a "symbol of the intimate relationship between man and nature." This artful mirror can serve as a practical piece in one's home, as well as a standalone work of art.
