Nouvel’s mirror designs on show in Athens gallery


French architect Jean Nouvel – the man behind The Louvre Abu Dhabi – is showcasing a collection of his artwork at the Gagosian Gallery in the Greek capital of Athens.

The exhibits are three-panelled coloued mirrors, with the central panel is fixed to the wall, while flanking and cantilevered panels are engineered to be movable.

Four mirrors are presented, each different in colour and orientation.


Nouvel said: “The mirror is a piece that you want to live with, in which you reflect intimate images—images from your home; you can capture a piece of a window in it somewhere.”

Colours range from light orange to blood orange to red, his signature colour.
