Honeycomb Mirror

Bertram Whitford > Portfolio > Mirrors > Honeycomb Mirror

An exploration into the use of aluminium honeycomb, a high-performance, lightweight material usually found in laser cutting beds or aerospace manufacturing.

Arriving as a small block of metal, the honeycomb structure has to be expanded in the workshop before being cut to size to fit in the sycamore frame.

The mirror stands off from the wall slightly, so as one passes by the light plays through the honeycomb structure giving the piece an extra depth and interest.

English sycamore and aluminium.
