Driven by a passion to create visceral experiences, Timothy Oulton presents one its most theatrical designs: Inception. Available as a mirror, pendant and sconce, Inception is an elegant and modern take on vintage infinity mirrors from the 1970s. Reflecting Timothy Oulton’s deep ethos of hosting, it’s the perfect conversation-starter for those who love to entertain at home.
Lighting up to reveal a tunnel of infinite lights fading into the distance, Inception plays with the senses, as if a portal has been opened to another dimension. LED antique-style bulbs create a soft lighting effect that is at once dramatic yet mellow. In the perfect blend of tradition and modernity, the frame is handcrafted in a Flat Brass finish, specially created to look like real brass that has slightly tarnished over time. The collection is also available in a bold and contemporary matt black option.
Inception also takes inspiration from trompe-l’oeil art, a traditional technique that originated in the Baroque period used by artists to create a 3-dimensional optical illusion. Exciting the eye with its illusion of space and light, Inception brings some of that same magic and artistry to your interior.
Tim Oulton says, “Inception is more than a mirror, more than a light, it has this dreamlike quality to it. The darker the room, the deeper the reflections, and the more dramatic the effect is. The whole mood of the room completely transforms.”
