RCA Show 2012: Kim Thome
The Reflection Range by Kim Thome, a recent graduate of London’s Royal College of Art, is a series of fluorescent furniture with geometric patterns and reflective mirrors that create varying optical illusions for the viewer.
The objects employ materials of glass and two-way mirrors that have both reflective and semi-transparent qualities. The bold, geometric surface patterns are defracted, creating optical illusions that alter according to movement and light. Thome’s work explores how both glass and mirror offer further potential for the materials, and the context in which they can be considered.
The Reflection Range was exhibited at Show RCA, which ran from the June 20 to July 1 2012.
