Sillon is French for “groove”, referring to the furrowed frame encompassing a series of three mirrors of varying sizes.
Inspired by French Art Deco, the grooves form a repeated pattern that’s graphic, which adds an intriguing clarity and contrast to the mirrors. Choose brass or chrome for the frames as a material touch to the three mirror sizes measuring Ø460, Ø660, Ø960, and you’ll be spoiled for choice as to placement options. From a lobby, hotel entrance hallway or bedroom to a smaller setting, such as a bathroom, with the freedom to group them together at varying heights or separately to make your own design statement.
German designer Sebastian Herkner transposes contemporary objects into cultural artefacts and vice versa, channelling his appreciation of authentic materials and artisan skills combined with modern technology. After graduating from the University of Art and Design in Offenbach, Herkner’s apprenticeship with Stella McCartney in London triggered his fascination with form, structure, texture, material and effects, evident in all of his work, including even the smallest of details.
Herkner's Sillon, part of the &Tradition collection, are a series of circular and rectangular mirrors in varying sizes inspired by the designs of French Art Deco.
