                                French designer <a href="http://www.ingasempe.fr/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Inga Sempé</a> just launched her first collaboration with Italian design brand <a href="http://www.magisdesign.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Magis</a>. The <a href="http://www.magisdesign.com/elenco_prodotti/vitrail/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Vitrail</a> series consists of stained glass-inspired mirrors that aim to bring life to any space much like a window. Sempé also considered Venetian mirrors with smaller mirror pieces framing a center one. With that in mind, she created modern versions using clear and colored mirrors.

The mirrors have injection molded rubber frames that are malleable enough to insert the mirror fragments in contrasting colors. The Vitrail collection includes four formats that can be hung vertically or horizontally, including a small square, large rectangle, and an oval that feature a larger clear mirror center with two colored fragments on the outside. The last design is round with five strips in two contrasting versions – a light grey frame with sections of pastel green glass, and a green frame with mirrors that range from black to light

As with all of<a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/Debra-Folz/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal"> Folz&#8217;s work</a>, it&#8217;s the clever details that really sets each design apart. From the tied satin brass hardware on the dressers and end tables to the layered glass tabletops that create color shifts, the functional pieces easily become works of art.

The bedroom storage pieces come in a 3-Drawer Dresser, a 5-Drawer Dresser, and a Nightstand, each with the twisted cast metal hardware, marble tops, and light grey ash finish.

The occasional tables are available as a Coffee Table and a Side Table featuring satin brass frames and glass in champagne and smoke that are layered slightly askew to reveal how the colors intersect.

The round mirror appears to be lassoed in a light bronze finished frame that rises to a triangular point

The mirrors come in different sizes that can be arranged in any configuration and hung in all directions for a multitude of looks. Whether they hang solo, paired up, or hung in large compositions, the three-dimensional looking mirrors offer all kinds of decorative possibilities.

The Panorama Collection includes the handheld DROP Model “S”, WINDOW Model “M” for narrow spaces, the DROP Model “M” that’s perfect solo or grouped up, the diptych PARADOX Model that plays visual games, and the largest WINDOW Model “L” which reflects larger surfaces.

                                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.

There are 10 new designs including armchairs, occasional tables, and mirrors, all of which are subtly influenced by different eras of Australian design. The collection, which uses an array of industrial materials like tubular steel and glass/brass/pewter finishes as well as jewel-toned velvet and classic marble, is sophisticated, glamorous and youthful all at once.

The Shu-Ying Armchair, with its luxurious gathered upholstery and curved frame, looks like it could be set against the backdrop of the Roaring 1920s in Shanghai or Sydney.

The Caristo Armchair is a modern interpretation of the wingback chair that would be found in Palm Springs or a harbor-side home.

Michelle is a family of mirrors that are related by its materials: steel, smoked mirror and marble.

                                There are certain encounters that cause you to pause and reflect. The moment you stand in front of a mirror is one of those instances. Drawing from his own personal reflections, architect <a href="https://www.adele-c.it/en/designers-en/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Marco Brunori</a> designed the <a href="https://www.adele-c.it/portfolio-category/marco-brunori/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Riflessioni</a> collection of five mirrors for <a href="https://www.adele-c.it/en/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Adele Cassina</a>, each composed of multiple pieces that can be configured and reconfigured for infinite reflections.

Pablo is a wall mirror/shelf that is made up of multiple reflective surfaces, a tribute to Pablo Picasso’s portraits made up of intersecting planes and facets.

Ray pays homage to American visual artist Man Ray, who contributed to the surrealist movement, and is inspired by Brunori’s personal reflections with his son Luca, who showed him new perspectives even as a child and later as a teenager.

Kiki was named for Kiki de Montparnasse, a model in the 1900s. The two mirrors allude to the model’s unforgettable image and simple but sophisticated

The Loop Mirror brings together concrete, a metal loop, and a mirror to form what you&#8217;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
