BORDO is a wonderful, pure-design mirror. The intersection of two individually defined surfaces clearly defines the surface that is mirrored.
By playing with transparent and black parts, the mirror appears to have a metal frame. You are misled by technology: the colour of the wall is visible through the transparent areas of the design, creating an illusion. Just where exactly is the edge?
Bordo is a deceptively simple design, a mirror without frills, and yet it is stylish and strong. It can be hung vertically or horizontally.
Annemie was the head of Deknudts design department for almost thirty years. Mirrors hold no secrets for her. Her vision is clear: be open and receptive to new things. Curiosity is an important stimulus. Spotting trends and crystallizing these into sellable products give her the satisfaction that she seeks in her profession. With a cultured appreciation for beauty, shape, colours and materials, she comes up with lots of distinctive designs. The mysticism of mirrors keeps her captivated.
