The Narcissist Dressing Table
Designed by: Neri&Hu
Manufactured by: BD Barcelona
Year of production: 2011
Their collection “The Narcissist”, which they have made for BD is an example: it is designed in China and made in Barcelona. It seems the world in reverse, but this is just a sample of what is to come. Lyndon and Rossana’s work embodies a confluence of western contemporary design features and traditional oriental roots. This project arose from a script created to measure for them. These are dressing table pieces, a type of furniture —very common in oriental culture— which is in danger of extinction.
Dressing table: Main body in beech plywood with the outer sides in DM lacquered in glossy black. The inside is solid oak with a natural varnish. Outer structure in iron and aluminium painted in micro-textured black. Mirror with concealed Led lights. The piece has a lock.
