    Milan 2012: London designers Doshi Levien presented this dressing table for BD Barcelona Design at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April. It’s designed to be seen from all sides and appears as though the circular mirror is merely balanced between other geometric elements, ready to roll away at any moment. ‘Chandlo’ was designed as a special prototype made by BD Barcelona for Das Haus 2012. This was an installation by Doshi Levien for IMM Cologne that explored their vision of a perfect home. Das Haus consisted of interconnected spaces opening up to a central courtyard. The different areas of the home depended mainly on objects and furniture to define space. ‘Chandlo’ was situated in the dressing space with an architectural juxtaposition of forms and planes to be viewed from all sides.’Chandlo’ means moon shape and also Bindi that is the coloured dot worn by Indian women on the forehead to which the circular mirror makes reference. The seemingly abstract composition of the mirrors, cabinet and surface is based on the gestures and daily ritual of dressing up and grooming, celebrating the enjoyment of getting dressed and the importance of personal grooming as part of our daily well being ritual. Our intention was to create a composition in which the elements are holding each other in position without actually touching. To maintain the simplicity of this deconstructed arrangement, we had to conceal the production methods and this presented many technical challenges overcome masterfully by BD Barcelona. The dressing table is accompanied by a rotating stool with silver embroidered lines on faux leather cushions.
