OFELIA
Photo holder designed by Superstudio

Ofelia is part of a series of small mirrors and a photo holder by Superstudio. The series 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 piece makes it become the precious support for a sheet of methacrylate to use as a photo frame. Ofelia, Spera and Vanitas, ahead of their time, represent a project of transformation capable of granting a new, refined aesthetic to industrial scrap.
