Oval bamboo mirror by Olaf Von Bohr for Bonacina, 1960s

Sold

Item description

Oval mirror in bamboo and India cane binders designed by Dutch designer Olaf Von Bohr for the Bonacina company in the 60s. The great genius of this interesting design object lies in the great versatility and potentiality of the use of bamboo, a material that has recently become fashionable again, also thanks to the rediscovery of the great masters and the great companies that in the '60s and '70s created real iconic pieces. Olaf von Bohr is one of the undisputed masters of industrial design, author of countless creations that have become emblems of an era and which, as is usually the case with other great masters of the past, has the ability to return to production thus determining trends and styles even after his death. The mirror is composed of an oval glass surrounded by an ingenious frame formed by two rounds of bamboo joined by a dense interweaving of prickly pear cane to small rods arranged radially with respect to the fulcrum of the oval mirror. The strong ornamental connotation of the "x" weave graphically marks the entire layout. An ideal design complement also for holiday homes as bamboo has a strong reference to marine atmospheres.
