The mirror is composed of three simple parts: a base, a structural piece for the back of the mirror, and the mirror itself.
A simple, elegant and ingenious construction. This clear –even blunt- approach is also a trademark of La Chance products. The Lalou mirror perfectly fits in La Chance collection and it is difficult to believe very graphic and pure design is 90 years old.
Most pieces Jacques Emile Ruhlmann designed were created for specific projects and customers. This mirror is unusual as it is one of the few pieces that can be found in various projects throughout Ruhlmann's career.
The idea for this simple table mirror appeared for the first time in his sketchbooks dating from the early twenties but it is found in a project for the first time in 1928 for the mansion of Mr. René Lalou - hence the name of the mirror - who was at the time the president of the Mumm champagne house. The mirror then became one of the trademarks of Ruhlmann and it was regularly featured in his projects with different materials and slightly different dimensions, becoming one of the first “edition piece” of the designer.
The original versions of this mirror are now museum pieces and regularly appear in the Art Deco auction sales and best Ruhlmann collections. La Chance partnered with the best expert of the designer to create a faithful museum-quality edition of this historic piece.
