Jenny Nordberg reflecting uncontrollable liquids within the process of making mirrors


It was a  very long time ago since I was searching for mirrors more than for practically being used in the hallway or bathroom  Not since the crazy mirror walls of the 80´s that I remember finding in the Ikea catalog knowing I had to have it.

Mirrors are back in vogue but now naturally in a new way. At Stora Trend dagen 2018 TrendStefan told the story of mirrors coming back and at Frankfurt Ambiente Interior Fair I just attended it was an obvious visual trend.

Nowhere have I seen mirrors making me want one more than at the exhibition Fluid Add-Ons at Stockholmmodern that you still can catch a glimpse of until the third of March. Fluid Add-Ons is Swedish Jenny Nordberg´s first solo exhibit in Stockholm.

During the summer of 2014 while working with the project ”3-5″Seconds-Rapid handmade production” Jenny Nordberg an industrial designer born 1978 researched ancient mirror making. The process and outcome was captivating and Nordberg has since then worked with this old method of making mirrors.

The process used has it’s origin in the 19th century and is resulting in a thin layer of silver (Ag) on the glass surface. Not covering the whole surface of the glass, each mirror becomes different due to uncontrollable liquids within the process of making.

Not one mirror being ever like the other one makes it so perfectly ”unperfect”

The fluidity makes the mirrors have an organic feel to them in my opinon. Click HERE to see that Residence agrees with the trend of mirrors coming back.



Love how uncontrollable liquids can become gorgeous unique design pieces. What do you think? Would you like one at home ? I would for sure.
