Gieves & Hawkes, London
The Avalanche Mirror, made from silver foiled glass, and patinated steel, is situated at the entrance on the ground floor of Gieves and Hawkes flagship Store, No.1 Savile Row in London, and can been seen from street level. Avalanche is a monumental relief structure, hand crafted from individual shards of mirrored glass to compose an abstract vision of the classic mirror deconstructed. With enormous energy, formed from chaos, organised and meticulously tailored to balance a state of flux between beauty and destruction, paradisiacs and pandemonium, it owns its presence. Avalanche is masculine by its very nature; however, it’s presence in the Gieves & Hawkes flagship store is softened by the elegant balance of furnishings curated by interior designer Teresa Hastings.
