We are rather enamored by Kim Thome’s latest exhibition at William Benington Gallery in London, which explores reflection as a means to “manipulate” the surrounding space.

In a color palette that is somewhat reminiscent of our S/S 15 Megatrends forecast Impulse, Thome has used the “gallery space as a canvas”, adorning the walls in colorful strips of vinyl. Two-way, semi-transparent mirrors are cleverly placed in the center of the room, enabling geometric patterns to naturally emerge.

“The graphic aesthetic becomes something of a relational experience with the viewer,” explains Thome.

Thome graduated from the Royal College of Art’s prestigious Design Products program in 2012, and has since been featured in numerous publications for his Reflection Range – he is certainly on our radar as a One-to-Watch.

Works on Reflection II will be on display until August 20th, 2013 at William Benington Gallery in London. You can read more about the artwork via the website. – Samantha Fox
