A tribal mirror would be an exciting addition to any space, and interior designers might be interested in Teddy Mossiant's new mirror collection. The French-based designer twisted string and wire around circular mirrors in a way that makes one think they're looking at an actual person. The visual aspect fits well with Mossaint's inspiration taken from cultural headpieces. When one peers into the mirror they can literally see themselves wearing the exotic headpiece. The collection is named ‘Tribu Marabout de Ficelle,' which references the Marabout tribe -- an Islamic nomadic group of people.

Tribalism works as an interesting design element for interiors, deviating from the minimalist concept that currently dominates the industry. The tribal mirror blends ethnic cultures with art and design to bring exotic decorative pieces to interior spaces.
