Bower is a New York City based studio with a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary furniture and product design. Through a free, experimental process, the intent of Bower’s work is to bring unique and unexpected objects into people’s lives. Bower designs are defined by a natural tendency to traverse conventional standards through an emphasis on essential forms. Finding intriguing characteristics in anything from plants and animals to toys from their childhood, they dream up completely different functional applications, often culminating in surprising results. This process is Bower’s happy place, experimenting and exploring a detail that has caught their interest without being sure how it will manifest itself in the end. The spirit of discovery lives through their collections and is felt when people engage with a Bower design.
The Column Mirror is Bower's interpretation of the classical architectural form found in structures from the ancient world to present day. The mirror is composed of long strips of glass that are progressively thinner towards the outer edges of the flat substrate, creating the illusion of grooves receding around a cylindrical pillar. The Column's height is designed to be easily customizable so that it can stretch from floor to ceiling, appearing to support the weight of the world, creating a dynamic integration between object and space.
