Obsession

Mirror, mirror

Mirror, mirror on the wall, which design is fairest of them all? Rhode Island School of Design graduate school sweethearts, Ben and Aja Blanc, have re-imagined reflective glass with color, shape, and supplementary materials. Their newest designs, on display at Salon in Beacon Hill, include mirrors marbleized with smoky finishes, along with black, silver, and rose-gold tones; some are trimmed with hand-painted silk fibers or Mongolian horsehair. The pieces, which are equal parts artworks and functional objets, manage to exude both playfulness and restraint. “New Work by Ben & Aja Blanc,” through Jan. 27 at Salon, 126 Charles St., Boston, salondesign.us
