THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

June 08, 2017

Glas Italia is known for its innovative, unique and sometimes whimsical glass designs. This week, we would like to shine a spotlight on some of their most intriguing mirrors created by renowned designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Piero Lissoni, Tokujin Yoshioka, Nanda Vigo and Laudani & Romanelli.
LEON BATTISTA
Laudani & Romanelli
The Leon Battista mirror is shaped in an artificial perspective, creating a “sfondato” effect. The converging frame is in mirrored glass and each side has different widths and inclinations, generating fragmented and unexpected reflections.
PRISM
Tokujin Yoshioka, 2013
The Prism Mirror is part of Tokujin Yoshioka’s first collection for Glas Italia, which also includes the Prism Table. Due to the reflections of the mirror and the special beveling of the glass edges, this design exudes a precious brilliance and shine.
ROKOKO
Nanda Vigo
Rokoko is a collection of mirrors with waterjet cut frames in transparent extra-light glass. The detailed yet symmetrical design adds a unique touch to any room. This mirror is available in horizontal and vertical versions, each in two sizes.
ETRUSCO
Ettore Sottsass, 1990s
This striking and dramatic vanity mirror was designed by Ettore Sottsass, the celebrated Italian architect and designer of the late 20th century- perhaps best known as the founder of the Memphis Group in the 1980s, famous for its colourful and flamboyant furniture, ceramics, and lighting pieces.
KOOH-I-NOOR
Piero Lissoni
The Kooh-I-Noor, which means “Mountain of Light” in Persian, is one of the largest diamonds in the world. Piero Lissoni designed the Kooh-I-Noor standing mirror to resemble the famous diamond. The irregular shape and faceted perimeter lend a stunning reflective quality that is as lavish as it is unique.
