Enoptron is a collection of furniture, seating and lighting unified by an eternal theme: the quest for self-discovery.
Embodying the ideals of reflection and enlightenment, these sculptural pieces have mirrored, oxidised bronze and marble surfaces that cast their surroundings in a new light.
In Greek, Enoptron is a looking glass that does not simply mirror reality, it is a manifestation of the subconscious, an opportunity to look inwards and know thyself.
From the self-love of the mythical Narcissus to the age of the selfie, humanity is susceptible to vanity. But mirrors are also the visual echo of a state of mind. The materialisation of a dream.
Inlaid, overlapping, or intertwined, Enoptron is an assembly of materials, elements, and forms stripped back to their essence.
Like the rippling surface of the Aegean Sea or sunbeams radiating from ancient marble, this collection is testament to our desire to bring light, clarity, and beauty to the world around us.
Aristotle described friendship as ‘the mirror of the self’, the perfect metaphor for Anaktae’s creative partnership.
