Looking at the way in which a picture or a painting is framed, the Copenhagen-based design studio KRØYER-SÆTTER-LASSEN investigated how an entire frame could surround a mirror without detracting from the beauty and reflection of the glass.
The result is Nimbus, a refreshingly simple mirror in bronzed or polished brass and light-reflecting glass, which defines a space with its soothing and sophisticated shape.
Mirrors are not purely functional: since ancient times, they have reflected the style of a period – framed by ornate Baroque flourishes or Gothic arches or the simple lines of the Bauhaus movement. Nimbus brings the fundamentals of the mirror into the modern age, yet with a mythological twist, referenced in its name: in Greek mythology Nimbus was a shining cloud or corona that often surrounded a
deity on Earth.
