Press Mirror by Philippe Malouin for Umbra Shift
Updated: Dec 25, 2019
Press mirror is created by flattening a single metal cylinder, leaving the base intact to allow the mirror to stand. The designer had initially conceived the product when pressing metal for a shelving unit. The polished steel creates a perfect reflective surface, while remaining sculptural when not in use. The base also allows users to easily grip the piece to use as a personal hand mirror. Due to the nature of its production, each mirror will have slightly varying compositions.
