Is it still considered vain to stare into a mirror as dazzling as this? We certainly hope not. The Francis wall mirror was designed to mimic the oxidation of antique mirrored glass. Blue and yellow pigments bleed together to create a wide spectrum of hues.
Parisian designer Constance Guisset created the effect using digital printing. The mirror measures 60 centimetres (23.6 inches) wide and 33 millimetres (1.3 inches) deep with the back curving outward slightly, allowing it to hang like a Venetian mirror.
The Francis wall mirror is available through Petite Friture, an online design collective which features emerging young talents. It retails for 495€ or about $600 USD.
While the price may be a bit steep, the mirror is more like a piece of art than a design trick for creating additional light and space. There’s also a pocket sized version, available in pink or blue for a fraction of the cost.
