Big Mirror

Big Mirror

The washroom, which is located at the bottom of an old smoke stack at Hirozakari Sake Brewery, is equipped with a stainless steel mirror panel that measures 6 m in width by 2 m in height. A visitor sitting on the toilet will see his or her own body reflected in the mirror. The upper half of the mirror panel is bent with a curvature of r = 5 m; consequently, the mirror presents a distorted image of the visitor’s upper torso. Since it is already planned for artists to draw paintings at the bottom of the old smoke stack, we hope they will be able to use the nature of the mirror panel so as to create a washroom that provides surprise and pleasure to visitors.
