If you’ve been looking for a functional mirror for your bathroom for a long time, look no further! You’ve found it already, and it’s Float mirror by designer Samuel Wilkinson for Ex.t. The piece is inspired by space and gravity.
Each mirror is handcrafted by family-run ateliers in Tuscany and combines a buoyant semicircular marble shelf attached to an opal glass sphere, creating a piece that exhibits both form and function. Like two planets in space an opal glass sphere is buoyant along a semicircular marble shelf over the Float mirror. Wilkinson equipped Float with an opaque round light that can be switched on and off using a pull cord, adding a novel play on the classic dressing room vanity mirror often seen in the backstage dressing rooms of theaters. The little shelf on the mirror is enough to hold some basic accessories, and that means that you needn’t any vanity at all – this mirror will fulfill its functions plus you will get an additional light, which is often necessary in bathrooms.
