"Rather than vanishing into its environment as anticipated, Mirror Ball does the opposite, which is to be ultra-visible, showy, and as they say in France, bling-bling." | Tagged

“The story I tell about this light, which half embroiders the truth, half post-rationalizes, is that after spending several years at Habitat in charge of editing, commissioning and reworking many thousands of designs a year, when I finally decided to leave I felt immense design fatigue and set about creating an anti-design product. The idea was to produce a completely spherical, highly mirrored object that would reflect its surroundings, and so would be, in my imagination anyway, chameleon-like and therefore invisible. A terrible then happens. Rather than vanishing into its environment as anticipated, it does the opposite, which is to be ultra-visible, showy, and as they say in France, bling-bling. The net result was that in the flashy part of the noughties it became a big success, despite betraying its original conception.”
