Using Mirrors to Extend and Transform Interiors
One of the most common decorative objects in projects, mirrors have existed since the Badarian civilization, around 4,000 BC. With several transformations in its material and manufacture, the mirror is a decorative object and can also serve as a design strategy.
The first mirrors found are personal objects made manually by polishing metals such as copper or silver. During the Middle Ages, mirrors were made from a mercury solution and a sheet of glass. Today, mirrors are manufactured industrially from a chemical solution using silver as a base. Their industrialization allowed them to gain larger dimensions and other functions beyond being an object of personal use, being able to be used in industry, science and architecture.
