6 Hype Mirrors To Take Selfies You'll never get bored in lockdown

In the past few weeks of lockdown, many trends fulfilled the never-ending days of our quarantines. Among them, the digital dimension has become the most effective and decisive way to spend our time. #Stayhome#Sendnudes and #workout are just some of the most used hashtags on the web, while selfies became the best alternative way to stay in touch.

You can look at it as an escape route or simply as a decor object, but the mirror is the perfect partner for anyone who loves to take selfies. From the most audacious living rooms to the master bedrooms, it's a silent partner-in-crime that knows your instincts and desires, in front of which you can show your true self or just let your mind go.

nss magazine selected 6 mirrors that are simply perfect.



The Deja Vù mirror reproduces the optometric board of your ophthalmologist and is designed by the Atelier Biagetti creative duo, as a part of the macro-project No sex in which Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari take an ironic trip to explore every sexual hint and ambiguous reference. In a time when virtual sex is not a taboo anymore, the body reflects as an object of manipulation and excess. The mirror comes in two versions, both self-standing and for the wall, and its structure is made by aluminium.



The Ultrafragola mirror/lamp by Poltronova is just a masterpiece, as the man that designed it back in 1970: designer Ettore Sottsass. Its sinuous frame evokes the hair of a lady: it's in thermoformed plastic and projects a neon-pink light, while is part of the Mobili Grigi project and still today it is an icon in the world of design. Ultrafragola plays with curves, shapes, neon and colors and is the perfect partner for selfies. Nobody can resist it, nor either Frank Ocean or Lena Dunham!



It looks like you're floating into Outer Space, where your reflection is altered and deformed. Depending of the color gradient and its position, Rondo changes the perception of its environment. Zieta is the Polish industry specialized in the production of objects made by stainless steel. The peculiarity of Oskar Zieta, founder and designer, is that he is able to make inflatable objects despite their material. Rondo swings between art and design, and its rhythm welcomes anybody who comes near it.



King Kong is a couple of mirrors designed by Jaime Hayon for Barcelona Design. Hayon has a distinctive style that comes in its colors and protagonists, creating a playful, surreal different universe. As its name points out, these mirrors recall the face of gorillas and celebrate ironically our origins, inviting us to not take ourselves too seriously. You just jave to set up your phone.



The mission of every creative is to re-think gestures more than objects. The secret could lie in the attitude of an anthropologically observation of vices, habits and strategies only to upset them. Ruban is the result of many creative efforts made by designer Inga Sempé for Hay. Sempé analyzes the environment with the eyes of a millennial and generates an object that can accomodate their dynamism. Leitmotiv by Ruban means lightness, and it comes in different dimensions and shapes. It is an invitation to be carried, taken, put in some place or just to hang. The perfect  “Home office” design for when you will have to come back to work.



Ola Wihlborg is the designer that gave birth to one of the masterpieces of the Swedish brand: Ikornnes mirror by IKEA. This mirror made by ash wood precisely responds to the idea of northern aesthetic with its morbid shapes, it essentiality and high performance. Ikornnes comes both for the table and self standing. Its design is never intrusive, though it captures the reflections and the attention of many narcissists and Instagrammers. The table version is made also to hang up, and is perfect for your desk in these days of smartworking.
