As part of the exhibition “SUR/FACE: Mirrors” at Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany, side table HABIBI by Philipp Mainzer will be presented alongside pieces by artists and designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Naoto Fukasawa and Iza Genzken.
On 1,200 square meter floor space, the exhibition focuses on the phenomenon of the mirrored surface in art, design and architecture of the present. Staging two spacious, abstract domestic situations reminiscent of lofts or temporary residences, reflective design objects and furniture such as side table HABIBI in polished brass and stainless steel form different interiors based on everyday lifeworlds. The viewers encounter rooms of everyday “mirror moments” while artworks, most of them mirrored themselves, enter into relationships with the interiors and reflect on the subject of reflection. The publication accompanying the exhibition delves into the mirrored surface against the backgrounds of design theory, psychoanalysis and the history of art and culture.
“SUR/FACE: Mirrors” will be on show from 24 June to 1 October 2017.
