Grass Mirror by H20 Architects

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

The latest project from H2O Architects takes inspiration from ancient philosophy. Where philosophers once looked at nature as a mirror, a method of contemplation, the firm turns the idea of the mirror into something that expresses nature directly and through a twist on the rectangle. The “Grass Mirror” reflects infinitely the objects surface, paying homage to thought in object form.

As object, the mirror can be displayed in a concise rectangle, or move to provide wider gaps and promote different types of reflection of the grass and mirror.
