The Soleil rattan mirror in just a few words

A KOK Maison creation from 1967, the original Soleil rattan mirror is back! An emblem of the golden age of rattan in the 60s, the Soleil natural rattan mirror from KOK will bring joy and good humour to your home, and will bring the little touch of casual naturalness that is sometimes missing in our contemporary interiors. Well proportioned: diameter 70 cm overall for a mirror diameter of 30 cm, lightweight (2.5 kg) but solidly constructed with beautiful sticks of natural rattan, it is frequently copied, but never equalled. Indonesian manufacture.

The history of the Soleil rattan mirror

The end of the 40s and the whole of the 50s were marked by the proliferation of seating and decorative accessories made from metal tubing. Easy to mass-produce industrially on a large scale, cheap, they were well adapted to the constraints of post-war reconstruction: equipping schools, offices and the brand new low-cost housing projects quickly and well. This so-called ""modernist"" style was so successful that at the turn of the 60s, with a feeling of saturation and the return of natural products, rattan craftsmen realised that they had a trump card to play by transposing the most fashionable shapes of the era into their favourite material. The “sunburst” theme was already very common in lighting and mirrors made with metal wire. Pieter KOK was the first to develop a ""rattan"" version. Success was immediate and this entire collection, which was not yet called ""Vintage"", was distributed everywhere, from small local basket makers to Parisian department stores. The Soleil mirror, together with the famous basket bed, the iconic Coquille armchair, and its big brother, the high-backed Marlène, signalled a new era! Available lacquered in Ellipse, and in Noir.

The Soleil rattan mirror in practice

Like the original models, the Sun rattan mirror is not equipped with a hanging or chain system. It can easily be hung from a small hook or bracket that you have found elsewhere on the market, and previously fixed to the wall or behind a door, by any point of the second rotin hoop. Supplied in an individual cardboard box.

Miroir soleil de belle qualité même si beaucoup plus clair que sir le site, je l'ai vernis pour le foncer. Livraison rapide mais 2heures plus tard que le créneau annoncé, sans être prévenue!
