That mirror on the wall reveals your truest self: let it be perfectly honest and charmingly flattering all at once. With the Lasso Mirror collection, Axel Bjurström has reduced all parts of a wall-hung mirror to the bare essentials, which are then assembled in a unified and functional design. No frame, just the mirror itself, assembled to form a tactile and appealing whole.
“What more do you need than a rope, a knob, and a reflective surface to put a mirror on the wall?” asks Axel. “Just tighten the lasso somewhat around the middle of the glass, thread it through the inserts on the back and secure it to the wall with the knob, and you have a tactile contrast between textile softness and perfect metallic shiny glass.” Axel notes that mirrors are often hung as an afterthought, with just a wire attached to the back. In the Lasso Mirror, that attachment is the unifying design concept, and as illustrative as the mirror itself. The rope seems to be thrown, like a lasso, then tightened and – despite its softness – imprinted in the glass.
Three spacers keep the mirror flush against the wall, and an ingenious attachment ensures that it will stay fixed to the knob. “It’s all about the materials: grained wood, a soft textile, and hard glass. I wanted to reveal all the opposites and bring them into a simple, perfect relationship with an organic expression.” The thick woven textile rope gripping the glass can also hold a note, card, or any kind of reminder. Choose a spherical or rectangular Lasso Mirror; knobs in solid oak.
