“It all started with a desire to create something eye-catching in the street to mark specific locations in Paris. I started with glass structures with a mirrored back to reflect the sun.
These were a bit fragile, so I opted for a completely mirrored structure, which was both more solid and gave me the pleasure of being able to see things that logically shouldn’t be there when you look in that direction. So the idea was born.
Creating my structures gives me a kind of tortured pleasure : it’s angular, it goes in all directions, I follow a line and then discover that it can twist endlessly in its own reflection. I regularly walk around the dial when I’m working, the mirror absorbing me.”
