                                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.

SP01’s 2018 Collaboration with London-Based Industrial Designer Tim Rundle

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. The Mohana tables are a series of modern tables that combine marble

Five Mirrors, Infinite Reflections: Riflessioni by Marco Brunori for Adele-C

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/five-mirrors-infinite-reflections-riflessioni-marco-brunori-adele-c/marco-brunori-adele-c-marcel_1813832/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/marco-brunori-adele-c-Marcel_1813832-810x540.jpg" alt="Five Mirrors, Infinite Reflections: Riflessioni by Marco Brunori for Adele-C" /></a>
                                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

Debra Folz Launches 4 New Collections for 2018

As with her previous work, each American made design goes a step further with clever details that will make you take a second look, whether it&#8217;s tables with glass tops made to look faceted gems, or mirrors that look as if they&#8217;re stitched.
Expanding upon the Gem Collection of tables, the Gem Mirrors look like gemstones with their layers of color in varying transparencies giving the illusion of facets. The mirrors come in rectangular, circular, and pear shaped variations. The Stud Mirror is a full-length mirror featuring differing shades meant to look like light hitting a 3D studded surface. The mirror marks the first product with this new pattern that will launch at ICFF this year. The Ribbon Console and

A Wall Mirror Composed of Three Materials and an Unusual Structure by Estúdio Parrado

                                <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&#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

FLUID ADD-ONS: Jenny Nordberg’s First Solo Exhibition in Stockholm

FLUID ADD-ONS: Jenny Nordberg’s First Solo Exhibition in Stockholm Swedish designer Jenny Nordberg recently opened her first solo exhibition in Stockholm with stockholmmodern where she presented a new collection of work, including mirrors, pewter mirrors, a thermometer/clock, and candleholders. As with her previous work, FLUID ADD-ONS includes pieces driven by experimentation with focus on the uncontrollable and highly standardized. Take a look. Mirrors is a series of Square and Circular Mirrors, each in an edition of 10, that were born from research on to ancient mirror making techniques done back in 2014 when she was working on her 3 to 5 Seconds – Rapid Handmade Production 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. Estrid are a series of one-of-a-kind pewter mirrors where she adapted a method

One to One Geometric Mirror Collection by Armando Bruno

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/one-to-one-geometric-mirror-collection-by-armando-bruno/one-to-one-mirror-armando-bruno-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/01/One-to-One-mirror-Armando-Bruno-1-810x540.jpg" alt="One to One Geometric Mirror Collection by Armando Bruno" /></a>
                                After a successful, limited edition run, designer <a href="http://www.studiomarcopiva.com/armando-bruno/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Armando Bruno</a> has gone back to the drawing board for his One to One collection of mirrors which are set to launch in April at Milan Design Week. This new round of geometric mirrors have been given a fresh spin with unique patterns of digitally printed marble details.
The collection includes circles, hexagons, triangles, and rectangles with unrepeatable marble patterns thanks to a production process that combines technology and craftsmanship. Each mirror is a glass plate with a thin layer of silver that’s attached to the glass by electrolysis. Parts of the silver are removed manually so those areas can be reprinted with the marble patterns, or etched and then reprinted with patterns. The process can be repeated multiple times for various effects. Photography Art Direction: Alessandro Bonavita
