Through the looking glass

Tokujin Yoshioka's PRISM mirror collection for Glas Italia creates a mysterious presence through its dazzling refraction of light.

Tokujin Yoshioka’s PRISM wall-mounted mirror is a sparkling sculptural piece that creates a mysterious atmosphere owing to its vivid and intense refraction of light.

The wall-mounted mirror is part of a collection of mirrors and mirrored furniture composed of thick, high-transparency mirror glass by the renowned Japanese designer-artists.

Being no stranger to creating designs with flat, polished surfaces that refract light, the PRISM mirror collection extends the designer's exploration into optics. 

Each piece of glass is sculpted by a faceted cut glass, as the idea is to create a mirror addressing the sense of transparency like a prism, says Yoshioka.

The simplicity of the collection offers a mysterious shimmer and presence through its refraction of light.

The PRISM mirror collection is Yoshioka’s second collaboration with Glas Italia. In 2002 he also created Luminous, a collection of glass high tables, for the Italian manufacturer of glass furniture pieces.
