Watercolor Pigments take on New Forms in Petite Friture's Latest Tables: FRANCIS

Petite Friture and designer Constance Guisset created the Francis mirror in 2011, a mirror with an iconic look that came about from an experiment with pigments: the fleeting vision of colour billowing off the tip of a paintbrush as it dipped in water. Last month, Francis tagged along for the ride to Milan to show off its new elements at Salone del Mobile: two three-table series, one with a white base, the other in black, and a new mirror beyond all measure. The two series of tables are a study-in-blue: the black series exploring the warmer tones of pink and violet; wheras the white series focuses on brighter yellow and greens.
Now presented along the horizontal plane, the haze-like pigments of the Francis mirror take on this new-found vigour, softening the harsh reflection and the circle's geometric proportions. Each table-top in the series comes with its own watercolour hue. The narrower the mirror, the more vibrant and animated the colour.
