The Functionals Mirror-Mirror Unfastens Your Reflection

Most people tend to install wall-hung reflectors in convenient locations throughout the house, but sometimes it's handy to make your image more portable. The Functionals Mirror-Mirror takes this need into account and offers the user a way to primp in a fixed location, but to take a bit of the looking glass away as well.

Designer Jan Habraken cleverly achieved this by conceiving a classic circular fixture with a tiny removable portion within. A much smaller circle is cut from the bottom of the piece, providing a clasp to hold the accessory, which takes the delightful form of a vanity mirror with a handle. When the two are connected, the contemporary Functionals Mirror-Mirror becomes a complete reflective surface with just a hint of a broken connection.
