‘Layered me’ mirror by mischer’traxler
Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, who form Studio mischer‘traxler were inspired by the idea that faces and personalities are not flat but multilayered.
For ‘Layered me’ mirror, several sheets of mirrors are introduced into one object. Due to the distance and scale of the single mirroring layers the reflections become disfigured and form an assemblage of various images.
‘Layered -me’ consists of four two-way mirrors and one sandblasted or coloured sheet of glass placed in an oak base. Since the two-way mirrors always let some light through, the reflections are lighter and seem to fade out, where less layers are on top of each other.

'Transcience' mirror by David Derksen and Lex Pott (NL)
With their recent project, David Derksen and Lex Pott - two young designers and Design Academy Eindhoven alumni – explored and reinterpreted the naturally occurring process of oxidation by using sulfur to accelerate and recreate this otherwise spontaneous, slowly-developing ageing process of silvered-glass mirror. By careful calculation and manipulation, the designers ‘stained’ the mirrors thus achieving a beautiful, geometric ombré pattern that is further accentuated by the overall shape of each of the three mirrors.

'Narciso' vase series by Giorgia Zanellato
Just as in the Greek myth of Narcissus, this series of vases by the young Italian product designer and recent ECAL graduate Giorgia Zanellato reflects and emphasises the beauty of blooms and ‘draws attention to the role of the flower’ thanks to the striking, kaleidoscopic effects achieved through the use of cleverly-positioned mirrors. Suitably named ‘Narciso’, the collection encompasses six different vases made of borosilicate glass, powder-coated alluminium and mirrored stainless steal. (more…)
