Part of our PlannerTM Collection, the Table Mirror was designed in the 1950s by the late Paul McCobb.
Fritz Hansen’s sophisticated Table Mirror proves that beauty’s
true reflection lies in simplicity, demonstrating the timeless appeal of mid-century modern design
Meet the realist and perfectionist - in personality as well as in his designs. Paul McCobb moved from Boston to New York to pursue his dream of becoming a designer. When it came to design he was completely self-taught but his profound understanding of perspective paved the way for his emerging career as one of the most important designers of the time. Perspective and scale in particular became a trademark for McCobb, whose tables, shelves and even lamps were the result of meticulous attention to the room the design would inhabit. Thin lines, simplicity of form and a distinct lightness characterize the works of Paul McCobb. He was a realist and a perfectionist and his design pieces are a clear reflection of his personality.
McCobb’s recipe for no-nonsense design, where only the essential is required to obtain both functionality and aesthetics, is a recipe we respect through our relaunch of McCobb's Planner™ coffee tables. Details such as the narrowing of the welted steel by the “feet” of the base is how one recognizes a genuine McCobb design.
