17 / IKEA / Mirrors / stainless steel, mirror
Design is the result of observation. Observing the clutter gathered around our hallway mirror at home that could include, tickets, photos, hair clips, pens, coins, chargers and jewelry we wanted to create a formal place for these items. The result is hybrid mirror and pocket folded in sheet metal. We then employed architectural forms direct from window frame catalogs. Rigorous international compliances are part of good design that is often not discussed but it was paramount for Ikea to make the frames suitable for ’wet rooms’ and ’drop proof’. Resulting in a bargain price for highly robust piece of industrial design.
