The Vitrail collection of mirrors composed of stripes in different colours, which draws its inspiration from old Venetian mirrors, has won the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019 in the “Best Shape Shifters” category.
This major prize is awarded annually by the authoritative magazine, Wallpaper* to celebrate the objects, places and people that have distinguished themselves over the previous twelve months. On this occasion it pays tribute to Magis’ quality, and to its recent, creative partnership with designer Inga Sempé.
The Vitrail series contains several mirrors made of different coloured segments reflecting images that become unusual and attractive places. The collection is a result of a collaboration between Magis and French designer Inga Sempé.
A rubber frame available in two colours holds the various pieces together, to make four formats – square, rectangular, oval and round – that can be hung horizontally or vertically or, in the case of the round mirror, even diagonally.
So a total of eight versions of refined, original mirrors, great for decorating any room: perfect in the hall to add depth, useful in the bathroom over the washbasin, ideal in the living room over a sideboard. And putting several Vitrail formats together on the same wall amplifies the space, creating a luminous point of interest, enlivened by a touch of vanity.
