A flower-arranging school in Japan is home to a massively luxurious new mirror installation, which was made using 40,000 shards of polished steel. Design brand Nendo was responsible for the creation of this display, which spans the entire first floor of the school. The goal of the project was to transform the space into an exciting new environment, which would leave the students both inspired and awe-struck.

Each piece of steel was cut specifically into a piece of metal "ivy" to produce what the artist responsible for the design calls "a stone garden." The display is set to reflect the flower school it is situated in and succeeds as the design resembles a serene garden space. This mirror installation is an example of a minimalist approach to an elaborate design.
