Form follows function in a fabulous fashion
Get in the right frame of mind with inga sempé’s ‘Vitrail’ wall mirrors, here set against a backdrop of Dedar’s bouclé-textured ‘karandash’ fabric. inspired by antique Venetian mirrors, which often included smaller pieces of mirror around a central looking-glass, ‘Vitrail’ comes in four different shapes, each incorporating coloured mirror-glass strips set in rubber frames. Meanwhile, Bang & olufsen’s ‘Beosound edge’ speaker, designed by Michael anastassiades, forms a perfect circle and features proximity sensors that activate its otherwise invisible touch controls. the volume can be increased or lowered by rolling the speaker from side to side.
