Description

Stella is an exciting new addition to the frame collection from Reflecting Design. Additionally, Stella represents a first; along with the new Arcavia frame, Reflecting Design is offering this mirror in two mirror options; a standard convex mirror and a beveled flat mirror. Stella is a wonderful new option in a wall mirror.

Design
The design concept for both Stella and Arcavia is inspired by jewelry design. Diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other precious gemstones are faceted to gather and reflect light. Stella applies a similar technique. The base form is faceted and modeled to produce a unique design, one which wonderfully reflects light off 168 individual surfaces. From all angles a rich impressionistic experience results.

Stella is in some ways an interpretation of the sun or star burst motif. Here the design is a significant departure from what we see so much of in the marketplace. Commonly long thin rays surround an insignificant convex mirror. Stylistically these designs date back centuries and little innovation has occurred in the meantime. By comparison, Stella is a bold frame centered around a large convex mirror – a large convex mirror offers the most impressive convex mirror experience, a signature of Reflecting Design convex mirrors. Stella by design is beautifully dramatic, an original exuberant expression of familiarity.

The frame is offered initially in three finishes. Two antiqued metallics – Antique Brass and Gunmetal, and one paint – Black Rust. Metallics compliment the faceted geometry creating light play. Antiqueing offsets the modern form creating a transitional piece.

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 through Reflecting Design. Care for your mirror and it will last a lifetime.

Flat Mirror
Beveled mirrors have edges that are cut at a slight angle to the normal surface. The bevel creates a beautifully natural framed edge to the mirror. It creates a finished look that augments the design. The mirror is a robust 5 mm thick glass mirror. A 25 mm bevel edge is cut and polished. An elegant 10 mm is visible.

Design Sketch

The Concept of Round

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.
