The beautiful gradation seen in the Transience mirror by by Dutch designers David Derksen and Lex Pott comes from different levels of the natural oxidation process.  The differently stages of colors are beautifully displayed in the overlapping geometries. 

"Over time, dark spots start to appear on mirrors. The silver layer is slowly oxidizing under the influence of oxygen and water, thereby showing some of its history. This process can be regarded as degradation, however this project shows the beauty of this material transition of silver. "
