Right Angle Mirror

Galerie Kreo, Paris (2012)

Rybakken presents a new version of his Right Angle Mirror

with the most prestigious contemporary design gallery -

Galerie Kreo in Paris.  



Right Angle Mirror, Edition Galerie Kreo, Daniel Rybakken 2012   

The mirror is made by laminated sheets of mirror-polished 

stainless steel. It is positioned at a 90-degree angle to 

the wall - this creates reflections and shadows cast on 

it's surrounding space. When standing next to the wall, 

looking at the reflection, the Right Angle Mirror has the 

mode as a mirror. But when taking a step out from the wall, 

it no longer reflects something recognizable, only the 

surface it is mounted on. At that point it is transformed 

into a sculpture where the curves touching the wall create 

the illusion of it being suspended in space. 

The Right Angle Mirror is presented in the exhibition 

'Autour Du Cou' at Galerie Kreo and it will run from the 

29th of November 2012 to the 19th of January 2013.

The mirror is made in a limited edition of 20 numbered 

pieces + 2 A.P. + 2 Prototypes.
