Decorative Convex Mirror
Description and Specifications
Over The Wall
CRUYF pronounced [croy-ff] is inspired by the frame styles of the Dutch Reformation from the 16th century. The style of the times was austere, modest, restrained. Heavy black frames were the fashion, colours were muted. Cruyf is bold and strong both laterally and vertically. The design lends itself perfectly to the convex lens. A deep wall on the inside is mirrored in the curved lens for a satisfying tunnel-like effect.
Convex mirrors curve outward grabbing reflections from the side and front. The effect is uniquely inclusive and engaging. The mirror is symmetrical. Objects are reduced evenly and there is no stretching or distortion in a the convex mirror. The bulge of the lens offers a softness – what we like to call feminine sensibility, which is very agreeable. A great offset to the hardline common in so much architectural design today.

The Convex Mirror
All Reflecting Design convex mirrors use acrylic to create the convex mirror lens. Acrylic provides for a more consistent geometry. Consistent geometry means an even proportional scaling without any of the stretching or distortion one commonly sees in glass convex mirrors. Acrylic also allows for greater variability in the geometry which means Reflecting Design can maximize the height of the curve for an optimal visual experience.
Convex Mirror Care
Do not clean our convex mirror with glass cleaners. All Reflecting Design mirrors ship with a dedicated cleaning kit. The kit is cleaning solution, a microfibre cloth and instructions. These components are commonly available through hardware stores, plastic supply shops or directly through Reflecting Design. Care for your mirror and it will last a lifetime.
There is no flat mirror option.
