  • Catalogue Essay

    The present model mirror will be included as number MN-13BHM-2003 in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Marc Newson's editioned works produced by Galerie Kreo, Paris.

    Much of Marc Newson’s work has been informed by his fascination with absence and presence: “Both my sculptural work and the production furniture have always had as much to do with what is not there as what is there—the voids, the interior spaces, the things that you don’t see.” While the "Black Hole" mirror is seamlessly constructed out of polished stainless steel, reflected light hitting the depression at the center of the piece creates the illusion of very deep space.
