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://design-milk.com/a-wall-mirror-composed-of-three-materials-and-an-unusual-structure/loop-mirror-estudio-parrado-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/03/Loop-Mirror-Estudio-Parrado-1-810x540.jpg" alt="A Wall Mirror Composed of Three Materials and an Unusual Structure by Estúdio Parrado" /></a>
                                <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

The wall-mounted Charlotte mirror was named after its designer, Charlotte Juillard, who added an unexpected detail into the design. The round mirror is bisected by a rectangular panel that’s magnetized. Install it near the front door for a quick face check on the way out the door and as a safe spot to keep your keys so you never lose them. Armand, a compact mirror by Elisabeth Hertzfeld, can be propped up to apply your makeup or laid flat to be used as a key, jewelry, or coin tray. It’s available in apricot pink, blue grey, and natural oak. Designed by HARTÔ, Narcisse is another tabletop mirror that’s made from metal and wood. The circular mirror rotates around for a better view.

Prismverse: An Installation of Geometrical Tessellated Mirror Walls

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/prismverse-an-installation-of-geometrical-tessellated-mirror-walls/prismverse-chris-cheung-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://design-milk.com/images/2017/10/Prismverse-Chris-Cheung-1-810x540.jpg" alt="Prismverse: An Installation of Geometrical Tessellated Mirror Walls" /></a>
                                Artist Chris Cheung, known as <a href="https://www.instagram.com/honhim/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">honhim</a>, and his team, <a href="http://xex.com.hk/works/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">XEX</a>, created a jaw-dropping, immersive installation called <a href="http://xex.com.hk/works/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Prismverse</a> that might make you feel like you&#8217;re living inside a faceted stone. The trippy, audio/visual experience was designed for skincare brand Dr.Jart+ to delight your senses as you enter and walk through the structure that&#8217;s outfitted with walls of tessellated mirrors.
The installation was inspired by how light passes through a brilliant cut diamond and the resulting brilliance that comes through the top of it. The LED floor and the geometric shapes on the walls work in combination to provide an experience like no other, as if you were transported inside of a diamond.
