The Benvenuto Mirror, designed by Paolo Cappello for Italian brand Miniforms is a minimal and elegant object, particularly suitable for use in a lobby.
The minimalist design approach is evident by looking at the utterly simplistic frameless design. The mirror is sleek and simple as, consisting of a large lean surface with elegantly rounded corners. The discreet styling is finalized with the subtle colored details. A linear storage shelve, convenient for storing small items such as key fobs or sunglasses, and three pegs particularly useful for hanging accessories such as scarves and hats. The hangers and the pocket change tray are available in white, black, red, yellow or green color.
