Tetsuo Kondo Architects' innovative design is a new take on an everyday object, which offers a blurred reflection from the sides.

Tetsuo Kondo Architects offer a new take on an everyday object with this full-length mirror, which provides a clear image when viewed straight on but a blurred one when looked at from other angles. The innovative design uses special film applied to the mirror’s surface, creating the effect that the object is blending into its surroundings.

Functional in essence, the piece also maintains the aura of a sculpture, softly shining when seen from an oblique angle. The frame is finished with subtly embossed paper, revealing itself on close inspection. Depending on the beholder’s viewing angle and distance, the mirror’s appearance transforms – sometimes a strong presence is felt while, occasionally, this unique object seems to disappear.
