Darkly Mirror is an exploration of the history of human beings’ relationship with the reflected image. Some historians believe that the earliest mirrors may have been small ceramic bowls filled with water used during the late Stone Age. The fact that there is no concrete evidence exists to support the theory fascinates designer Nick Ross, whose Darkly Mirror for MENU takes inspiration from the ceramic bowls. “That it cannot be proven adds to the object’s mystery. Is this a new object, or an old one reinvented? I wanted to take this notion and create a modern object which questioned its possible past and its relation to ‘the self’.”

Nick Ross Studio

Nick Ross (1986) is a Scottish-Swedish, Stockholm-based designer studied industrial design at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, -and was awarded the Arts & Heritage prize for his graduation project, Stray, in 2008. Later on, he enrolling in fine arts Master’s program in interior architecture and furniture design at Konstfack in Stockholm, in 2013. Immediately after graduating, he began working as an assistant to Swedish designer Matti Klenell until establishing his own self-named, Stockholm-based studio in 2014.

Ross is a designer with a penchant for scarce spaces that focus on the use of materials and light in a given expanse. His research centres on the complex repertoire of history, with a particular focus on ancient history, where he finds the factors with which to interpret the relationship between the user and contemporary design. Using storytelling as a pretext and applying a confidently critical approach, Nick is interested in investigating facts and happenings that have determined specific cultural balances. Every project comes from the desire to create ideal or real bridges between the present to that of the past.

At first glance, Nick Ross appears to have a great eye for presentation. A closer look reveals a sensitivity to materials that makes bold moves appear delicate. He considers how historical interpretations alter our current perceptions of objects. The main interest lies in how guesswork or cultural ‘curation’ can create situations where we are influenced to think in certain ways and feel certain things.” According to the designer, “My work looks at the role of history and storytelling in how we perceive the world around us, by working with themes such as place, origin, and the role fiction plays in past and present societies.
