OFELIA SPERA VANITAS
Mirrors and photo holders designed by Superstudio

This series of small mirrors and a photo holder by Superstudio began with the idea of using scraps from the processing of marble. An operation of bricolage, rather than creation, as the Florence-based group stated at the time. Careful milling of the irregular marble pieces makes them become the precious support for a mirror and for two sheets of methacrylate to use as photo frames. Ofelia, Spera and Vanitas, ahead of their time, represent a project of transformation capable of granting a new, refined aesthetic to industrial scrap.
