VANITAS
Mirror and photo holder designed by Superstudio

Vanitas is a small mirror 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 two sheets of methacrylate to use as photo frame. “Ofelia, Spera and Vanitas” series, ahead of their time, represent a project of transformation capable of granting a new, refined aesthetic to industrial scrap.
