The Tetsuo Kondo Architects Mirror Must be Viewed Straight-On

A functional piece with sculptural qualities, the Tetsuo Kondo Architects Mirror is unique in that if you look at it from anywhere but straight in front, you’ll see a cloudy image rather than a clear reflection.

The architects achieved this effect by laying a special film over the glass of the Mirror. This renders the Tetsuo Kondo Architects Mirror non-reflective when seen from an angle, so you can only view a clear reflection of yourself if you stand directly in front of it.
