Who: Sabine Marcelis is a designer living and working in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Since graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011, she has been operating Studio Sabine Marcelis, working within the fields of product, installation and spatial design with a strong focus on materialities such as resin and glass. Her past clients include fashion houses Celine and Burberry.

What: 'Seeing Glass' is a series of glass objects that is a result of an ongoing study into the optical effects created with glass. Sabine and her compatriot Brit van Nerven collaborated with glass specialists to experiment with colour and layering. 'Big Round' utilises several layers of glass that sandwich colour foils to create an interplay of colour and depth within the reflective surface.


Who: Melbourne-based studio Middle of Nowhere was founded by father-daughter duo Grant and Sarah Brooke.

What: The 'Mira Duo Round' mirror combines tinted and regular mirror panels with a matt-painted angled frame. Available in warm rust, cool dusk and grey storm hues, the mirror can be hung diagonally or horizontally as shown.


Who: New York City-based multidisciplinary studio Bower focuses on mirrors and perceptions of depth, light and self. They believe that of all the things that surround us at home every day, the mirror is most "closely related to our consciousness". 

What: The 'Full Circle' mirror' can be customised in a variety of sizes, frame finishes and glass tint. For other variations, check out their extensive material library. 


Who: Creative couple Kathrine and Per Gran Hartvigsen are behind Danish design brand AYTM.

What: With its slim frames and tinted glass, the 'Circum' mirror comes in five dramatic combinations and three sizes including a rosy blush tint.
