The Rise and Shine mirror resting on Hunting’s desk. Although Hunting and Narud's pieces often feature precious materials, their use is never an arbitrary choice. “It’s a combination of factors, not just the value of the material. Like the mirror here — it has solid brass elements but than it also has plain plywood backing. The brass was chosen purely because of the weight. The small counterbalance piece weighs the same as the surface of the mirror,” explains Narud.
