The Venus of Milo belongs to the most famous examples of Hellenic arts. In 1937 the Italian designer Carlo Molino designed this mirror, a tribute to the Greek sculpture, which embodies the ideal of feminine beauty.
Thanks to Molino, the beauty of Venus rubs off on all humans, which look into the mirror – a beautiful and classic-mystic imagination, which finds its realisation in here.
The erotic components of the object can’t be denied and just this was the intention of Molino, because many of its designs unify this characteristic. Thereby it succeeds on an almost inimitable-sophisticated way, to transfer the aesthetic of the human body on interior furnishing.Also in our blog:
