Your Best Opportunity to Buy a Beautiful Convex Mirror

CRUYF pronounced [croy-ff] is inspired by the frame styles of the Dutch Reformation of the 16th century. This was a time when heavy black frames emphasized by a lack of ostentatious elements was the vogue. Cruyf is bold and strong both laterally and vertically. The style lends itself perfectly to the convex lens. To great effect the deep wall on the inside is mirrored in the domed surface.

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.

Flat Mirror
There is no flat mirror option.

Design Sketch

The Spirit of a Mirror

I believe there are certain ‘spiritual’ or abstract qualities inherent in my line of decorative convex mirrors. I promote convex mirrors to make money, yes, but equally I promote convex mirrors for non-material reasons. In the beginning I just thought convex mirrors were ‘cool’. Over time and with some of it spent thinking about my product line, I have gained an understanding, some of which you might like to consider.

It is said, “a mirror is absolute truth,” “a gateway to the soul”. And in a way this is the problem with flat mirrors. Setting aside their usefulness who wants to stare into their soul, or be confronted by an absolute truth this way? Sometimes a mirror reflection is a harsh, even unwanted, reality.

By comparison a convex mirror reflection takes one in another direction. A convex reflection inspires the imagination towards something else. We see in the round, a reflection of the world, a field of vision not dissimilar to our natural vision. Much as our eyes take in a large panorama the convex mirror presents similarly. It takes in or embraces people and place.

Unlike a flat mirror it is not self-centered. Compared to a flat mirror as well it is responsive; from wherever you stand the mirror reflection responds – it gives back something visually meaningful. Take for instance the flat mirror over the mantle. What do you see seated on the couch? The ceiling?

Equally positive is that a convex mirror is round. The circle is a universal symbol with many meanings. It represents the feminine or maternal; and beautifully the convex mirror bulges as if echoing this idea. The circle is a symbol of the infinite, the cycle of life and a symbol of potential. And so on the wall a circle evokes a deep feeling.

A circle is calm by nature. It does not impose itself on you in an aggressive, grand or pointed manner. In a world where architecture is often hard and rectilinear the circle by contrast is soft and friendly.

And so, I think there are ways in which a decorative convex mirror in an interior design can bring much positivity and pleasure. It will be something you will always enjoy.

Admittedly this all sounds somewhat lofty or pretentious since I am merely talking about a mirror, but I stand by this. You will love living with your convex mirror.
