a mirror which only works if more than one
person is using it

On the occasion of being one of the winners of the ‘Designer of the future award’, we got commissioned to develop new work on the theme of ‘conversation pieces’ , which premiered at Design Miami/ Basel in June 2011. Conversations are important to learn about oneself and to define who you are. Through conversation with others, one is able to discover oneself. This was the starting point to develop a mirror which visualizes that self reflection requires interaction with others. It takes more than one is a mirror which is just working if more than one person is standing in front of itThe mirror appears just white if one looks at it alone, but as soon as another person is joining, it becomes reflective and shows both persons in the mirror. The shape of the leaning mirror represents two single outlines that are overlapping each other. The intersection of the two shapes turns from a matt white surface to a mirror. Sensors in the mirror’s frame detect how many people are in front of it and switches the mirror on or off.

small technical note: The mirror just needs energy when being reflective and not when being turned off

if just one person is standing in front of the mirror it stays white

detail of the two overlapping frames

The mirror is just working if more than one person is standing in front of it, because only through conversation with others, one is able to discover oneself.
