Designer Sebastian Errazuriz create an unforgettable functional pieces that double as sculptures. The latest design of Sebastian is The Narcissus Desk, a desk that will let you gaze at your reflection all day long.
The desk’s inspiration came from a Caravaggio painting of Narcissus that Errazuriz remembers seeing with his father, an art teacher, as a child on a trip to Italy. The painting made him think about the idea that someone could stare at their reflection but not necessarily be aware that they were looking at themselves.
Nowadays Selfies are a big obsession and everybody want a perfect editable photo, and beacause of that people tend to forget about the real person that exists outside the screen. The desk offers the user a moment of reflection, where we spend most of our days and tend to make the most important decisions in our lives.
Errazuriz found a broken French desk from around 1880 and completely restored it. He then cut a semi-circle out that lets the user fit inside the desk.
The top is now a mirror letting you take a moment to reflect on yourself and your life, and perhaps the occasional good hair day.
