The Cesta Wall Mirror Round compels with its contrast of a simple circular shape with a colourful frame. Designed by Pauline Deltour, who was inspired for this collection after visiting traditional workshops in Colombia, the metal frame features a tall rim that’s decorated with coloured PVC-Strings made from recycled plastic. The round mirror adds a joyful pop of colour to any wall. The collection also includes an oval model.
The coloured strings, made from recycled PVC, are woven by hand around the powder coated metal frame. The Colombian craftspeople, based in Bogota, use traditional weaving techniques that are handed down from one generation to the next generation. The production of each mirror takes three days.
Born in France, Pauline Deltour’s aesthetic is defined by being strikingly simple and beautifully detailed at once. Her designs showcase a curiosity in the qualities of the raw materials and transferring production techniques between disciplines.<br>Pauline Deltour joined ames founder Ana Maria Calderón Kayser on a trip to Colombia to study the local materials first hand and learn from the artisans about the traditional weaving techniques. Back in her Paris studio, where she develops furniture and product designs for international brands, Deltour designed a range of furniture and living accessories for ames.
