The eye-catching Metal Wall Relief Heart was designed by Alexander Girard for Swiss design company Vitra.
Creators of understated modern furniture and home furnishings for more than 50 years, Vitra has a particular flair for helping designers use the newest technologies to give a unique twist to their products. Inspired by his desire to capture something of the sun's heat and light, the design and construction of Alexander Girard's glowing Metal Wall Relief Heart exemplifies this talent.
Made from a warm copper-coloured brass, the Metal Wall Relief Heart is both a mirror and decorative adornment. Measuring 38cm in height, 43cm at its widest point and 6cm in depth, it is the perfect size for use as a traditional mirror. With careful placing on the wall, it can also be used to reflect light around a room or to brighten a dim corner. Much more than this, as well as its obvious practical functions, the discerning customer may also be inspired to use it as Alexander Girard himself did: as a beautiful decorative item that is certain to raise a smile on even the gloomiest of days.
