SP01, a new Australian brand manufactured in Italy, has collaborated with London-based designer Tim Rundle on a 10-piece range. It features the Michelle tubular brass, pewter or blackened steel smoked mirrors, which can also be embellished with a marble tray.
The masculine, industrial, steel-framed Yarra Mirror is by Harris & Harris. Leather-wrapped blocks complete the design with stitch and stud detailing. Bespoke sizes and finishes are available, but it is shown here with a black powdercoated steel frame and grey leather.
Dutch designer Lex Pott has a number of mirror lines as well as some bespoke pieces. Facett, his latest piece, combines – as the names suggests – faceted glass and three-dimensional shapes. It bis available in three sizes, including a full length version.
Rooted in Manchester and now an international brand, Timothy Oulton has a background in antiques but strives for a modern aesthetic. Florentine, created in matt black genuine reclaimed timber and clean glass, has a Renaissance influence.
Mirrors from Tom Trimmins’ Loop Collection come in four sizes and in oak, walnut and ash finishes. Trimmins uses Shaker craft techniques, like the swallow tail joint that fastens them and experimental steam bending to create the sculptural hoops of wood.
The Gambling Skull etched mirror wall light is designed by contemporary Chinese artist Jacky Tsai for eccentric British design company Mineheart. The bevelled edge piece has a round central glass mirror and a lead time of four weeks.
Launched during Stockholm Design Week 2017, the 124°series of freestanding and wall-mounted mirrors, some featuring integrated shelves, is by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken for Artek. Its name stems from the fact that the mirrors’ two faces are placed 124 degrees apart.
