For years now, Oskar Zieta, of <a href="https://zieta.pl/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Zieta Prozessdesign</a>, has been <a href="https://design-milk.com/?s=Zieta+Prozessdesign" rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">reimagining the average mirror</a> and going three-dimensional by inflating the material so it reflects its surroundings in its own unique way. His mirrored collections are the result of <a href="https://zieta.pl/fidu/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">FiDU</a> technology that converts flat objects into three-dimensional ones, like his latest, the <a href="https://zieta.pl/gradient_collection/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Gradient Collection</a>, which comprises a trio of stainless steel mirrors.
The Gradient Collection is a series of stainless steel mirrors that are polished to mirror finish and covered with a special lacquer that results in the rich colors you see, as well as unbelievable reflections. Available in Sapphire, Emerald, and Gradient (Sapphire and Emerald), the mirrors feature surfaces with curves that form as the material is inflated, leading to creases and bends that differ between every piece. The variations in the surfaces create visually delightful sights that turn these mirrors more into sculptural pieces of wall art.

<a href="https://www.estudioparrado.com/" rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Estúdio Parrado</a> created a wall mirror composed of three complementary pieces that come together for harmonious balance. The Loop Mirror brings together concrete, a metal loop, and a mirror to form what you’d think would be a bulky finished product but instead is a delicate, refined piece for the wall.
Wanting to eliminate waste, they turned to digital technologies, specifically CNC technology, to get each component ready to assemble. The concrete base was formed after making a machined MDF model so they could make a polyurethane mold. The mold was tricky as it needed to have three parts that would shape the notch that holds the mirror glass, a wall bracket, and a pin that holds the frame together, all in one piece. The looped frame is a machined steel strip with two holes that fit securely around the concrete pin.
Separately, the pieces don’t make much sense until they fit

project. Falling in love with the process and its results, Nordberg created these oversized mirrors by applying a thin layer of silver (Ag) on the glass and letting it do its thing. Since liquids are uncontrollable, each mirror is different.
