Things We Like: Richard Brendon’s “Reflect”

richard_brendon_reflect

Seeing troves of orphan saucers collecting dust in antique shops, British designer Richard Brendon designed a brilliant way to give these objects a second life.

Brendon designed a blank bone-china tea cup—a ghostly stand-in of the Georgian variety—that’s finished off with a reflective surface. Like a Chameleon, the cup replicates the look of it’s supporting cast—albeit with a slightly broken, melting aesthetic.

Reflect is one of those rare gems that fills a need by repurposing discarded materials while also building on a visual legacy with a whole new look. It’s cheeky and rational, clever and satisfying, and the perfect mix of form and function.
