GIEVES & HAWKES WILLIAM KENT ROOM AQCUIRE HURRICANE MIRROR BY FREDRIKSON STALLARDOctober 29, 2014 12:08 pm
Gieves and Hawkes acquired several new works by Fredrikson Stallard to underline their newly refurbished flagship store at No.1 Savile Row in London.
Hurricane is the first of a series of mirrors and is displayed above the fireplace of the famous William Kent Room, as well as a second piece crowning the fireplace in the splendor of the bespoke tailoring room.
Visually Hurricane is an extension of Fredrikson Stallard’s Crush series. Created from mirror polished aluminium the piece is hand crushed by the designers. Its form is no longer bound by the glass box and its material quality is amplified by its hanging status, reflecting light back into the room, distorting the settings with abstract, painterly reflections of its environment.
