Installation for Casa da Música 2nd anniversary
Oporto, 2007







Eikón is a series of mirrors designed on the occasion of the second anniversary and the new visual identity launch of Oporto’s Casa da Música.
Following the analysis and interpretation of the mimetic communication developed by Stefan Sagmeister’s for the Concert House and Foundation, six large-scale mirrors were designed and placed around the public areas in the interior of the building.
Simultaneously reflecting the inside and the outside of Casa da Música, these mirrors unveil new perspectives on the architecture and create unexpected relations between space and its visitors.
Eikón can be considered, by its use of scale and reference to both two-dimensional imagery and three-dimensional space, as a link between Architecture and Graphic Design, as a materialization of an icon translated into human scale.
