The Venus by Milo, on show at the Louvre in Paris, is considered one of the most famous examples of Hellenic art. Inspired considerably by its shape, the Italian designer Carlo Molino designed this mirror in 1937, a homage to Greek sculpture, which embodies the ideal of feminine beauty.
Thanks to Molino, the beauty of Venus can rub off on anyone just looking in the mirror - a beautiful, classic and mystical impression made real.
The erotic element of the object cannot be denied and this was exactly the intention of Molino, as many of its designs include this aspect. He succeeds in carrying over the aesthetics of the human body to a domestic object in an almost unique and sophisticated way.
