A formal frame: this is a mirror which combines a visual aspect, created by the balance between the flat mirror and the empty volume of the coloured box, and a functional one created by the mirror's frame which doubles as a shelf.
The colours of the frame and the shelf can be freely combined together. The fixing system to the wall allows to point the mirror in different ways, changing also the position of the glove shelf. The frame is drawn up for the integration of a LED light to be put around the outside perimeter into a compartment with a lid in opaline polycarbonate. LED strip Kit (optional).
Born in 1973 , Marco Acerbis graduated in architecture at Politecnico in Milan in 1998. From 1997 to 2004 he lived in London where he collabrated with Lord Norman Foster’s Studio.

He then becomes Project Architect for Capital City Academy, a 250 meter long High School building for 1400 students which was opened by Tony Blair. He sets up his own practice in Italy in 2004. Fascinated by designing at very different scales, he quickly moves on to explore with a constant cross over of skills, ideas, tools and technologies all sorts of subjects to achieve a globally designed space. Among the prizes received, he was awarded the Good Design Award by Chicago Athenaeum, two times the Red Dot Design Award, the Menzione d'Onore at the XXI Compasso d'Oro ADI, and is a finalist at the Renzo Piano Foundation Prize “Young Talent Architect”.
