Classic meets modernity: The Menu Pepe marble mirror translates classic shapes and materials into a contemporaneous context.
The eponymous Studio Pepe is responsible for the design of the Menu Pepe mirror. The classic shape and the clear aesthetic, inspired by Italy of the 1950s, add an iconic value to the mirror. It can be used every day and it might be inherited to the next generation one day.
Iconic shape and precious materials
Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto by Studio Pepe explained: “We like the Italian aesthetic from the late 50’s and up – back then the educated and sophisticated growing middle class had a style who was very well represented by masters such as Caccia Dominioni, Gio Ponti and de Carli and in Michelangelo Antonioni’s movies like ‘La notte’. A style, which used a lot of precious materials such as marble, brass, precious woods and patterns.”
And that’s how the material is as precious as the design: The round mirror is framed into the brass. The mirror swings and the base of marble keeps it stable all the time. If the mirrors are combined, their unmistakable style is even emphasized.
