17 PATTERNS AND HAIDÉE DREW PRESENT A UNIQUE COLLABORATION TO THE MARK THE CENTENARY OF THE ORIGINAL WW1 DAZZLE CAMOUFLAGE
To mark the centenary of ‘Dazzle Art’, this dynamic east London partnership delivers a highly original geometric wall mirror elevated by its unique concertina design and architectural facades. Paying homage to the optical art form first introduced as naval camouflage during World War 1, it was 17 Patterns ‘Dazzle’ wallpaper collection that first inspired the collaborators to embark on an exploration of guise and illusion, developing a companion mirror that extends the alluring symmetry of its wallpaper counterpart.
THE TRIPTYCH MIRROR DISPLAYS BOTH HAIDÉE DREW’S UNIQUE TALENT FOR CREATING SCULPTURAL OBJECTS WITH FUNCTION AND 17 PATTERNS’ TRADEMARK INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DEVELOPING AND PRODUCING BOLDER, MORE INTELLIGENT COMPOSITIONS
Creatively disruptive, blurring the lines between art and practical decorative design, 17 Patterns & Haidée Drew’s ‘Dazzle Mirror’ is a highly polished piece of engineering. Hand-made in the UK using mirror-finish solid brass and steel. Precision folding gives each geometric mirror a concertina effect, delivering a distinctive next-generation aesthetic.
THOUGHTFULLY CRAFTED TO BE EQUALLY AT HOME ON ANY BACKGROUND
This talking-point design reflects how generations of architects, fashion designers, and graphic artists are still inspired by the pioneering, visually disruptive wartime Dazzle designs, introduced by the renowned British maritime artist, Norman Wilkinson a century ago.
