Seeing yourself from various angles can be more useful than beholding your image straight-on. The Oponce Mirror collection comprises clusters of looking glasses that have been incorporated into frames that bend and turn, simultaneously presenting fragmented pictures with slight side views.

This quirky home accessory was produced as a collaboration between several different designers and manufacturers including Jean-Charles Amey, Pierre-Yves le Sonn, Claire Baudrimont and Sebastien Poinas. The final product expresses this multifariousness in its abstract and topsy-turvy appearance, as well as in its subtly discernible fusion of domestic and automotive design. It seems that the individual reflective units have been inspired by cars' rearview mirrors.

The Oponce Mirror comes in a variety of sizes and shapes with anywhere from one to five connected reflectors. They're playfully trimmed with colorful leather over their rounded wood-plastic structures.
