'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…)

'Knob' by Patrik Hansson Karl Andersson
One particular hobbyhorse of the Swedish manufacturer Karl Andersson are simple and space-saving hallway accessories. At this year’s Stockholm Furnture Fair they presented two new lines designed by Patrik Hansson and Elin Lundmark. ‘Knob’ is nothing more than a turned coat hook in solid wood which works both on its own and grouped together, either in vertical or horizontal rows, or in combination with additional accessories, such as a mirror or a coat rack.

'Tinted Mirror' by Daniel Rybakken
The young Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken is known for his subtle and decent work. The atmospheric influence of light and reflections is the central theme of his projects. With ‘Tinted mirror’ he unites two seperate objects, a wall mounted mirror and a hanging coloured glass plate to one three dimensional product, reaching from the wall out into the room. Depending on the ambient light the cast shadow on the wall changes over the course of the day.
