Carla & Carlo: Dressing Tables by Florian Schmid

We first checked out the work of Florian Schmid a few years ago, loving his furniture that looked like stitched concrete. Now he’s back with new designs, a pair of dressing tables named Carla and Carlo that are being produced by Zeitraum.


Carla forms a geometrical composition with a large, round mirror that’s bisected by a wooden shelf on two legs, still leaving plenty of room to gaze at yourself. The narrow shelf can hold your jewelry, makeup, accessories, or even your cell phone, as there’s a cable guide hidden behind the shelf.


The shelf is reflected in the mirror making it appear larger than it really is. It even looks like it has three legs.





Then there’s Carla’s partner, Carlo, another dressing table that was designed to be used while standing with its tall, rectangular mirror.
