Looking glasses can be great decorative elements within a space, leading designer Kai Linke to explore a more sculptural medium with the production of these Pi Mirrors. This pair takes on a marvellously purist style with the fusion of perfect circles and rectangular prisms that construct lovely propped-up reflectors.

Beautiful blocks of white marble with subtle gray veins were cut into cubes and tall and slender bricks with slits sawn into their tops. It's in these slots that the round reflective glass pieces are inserted, seemingly arbitrarily to take unbalanced arrangements. The weight of the elegant stone gives the Pi Mirrors stability so that symmetry is not necessary. The outcome is a set of minimalist items with an obvious whimsical character.
