A looking glass can be designed as simply or elaborately as the creator likes and the Copperfield Mirror is caught somewhere in the middle. It's more than a mere rectangular reflector, yet it's void of the flamboyant details that were popular in vintage versions.

The o4i Design Studio created a piece that suffices to display its beholder's image as well as provides storage. A frame was necessary to create a narrow gap between the reflective surface and its protruding border so that it can accommodate the placement of several small objects.

The Copperfield Mirror takes a square form with a large circular cutout. The corners of the frame keep wallets, cellphones, makeup and mail from falling out, while the brightly painted backing casts back a splash of color for more dimension and visual intrigue.
