Florian Schmid Carlo Dressing Table
  • Florian Schmid Carlo Dressing Table
Geometrical composition from the circle and line forms CARLA. The taller right-angled mirror variant is CARLO. A flat wooden board, resting on two legs, cuts the mirror along the vertical axis and thus divides the object into two halves. The full height of the mirror is retained on the outside, thus offering an unobstructed view. On the inside, the narrow shelf space provides room for accessories, jewellery and the like. A hardly visible cable guide is hidden behind the shelf, so it is also a good place for smart phones, mobiles and other electronic devices. Due to its reflection in the mirror, the shelf seems visually larger than it actually is, and even seems to stand on three legs and or lean on an artificial window. The room becomes larger and interplay arises between looking in and looking out. Thanks to its narrow proportions, CARLA and CARLO can stand in the bedroom or dressing room, but also in the corridor, hall, bathroom or hotel room. The idea of taking up the theme of dressing tables from bygone times arose from the observation that some furniture is simply vanishing from our lives because our lifestyles are changing.
