Simon Harlow and Lewis Harley have created a new design object especially for A-M-G5’s space in Oxford House, Glasgow – a table and bench seat almost hewn into the negative space of a 1000mm x 1000mm x 1000mm cube.
Developed by Harlow and Harley, Mirrl is a solid surface material on a birch plywood substrate made using resin and colour. It is custom made is small batches using a technique inspired by Japanese lacquerware from the island of Hokkaido and has a distinctive organic pattern. In the object for A-M-G5, Mirrl is being used to provide a small self-contained environment to sit in – a place that one may go to do some thinking. This is a nod to specific allocations of space and material within daily Japanese life that are chosen to represent, or allow access to, certain states of mind.
