A Furniture Collection Inspired by Narcissim

Through furniture, an imaginary mirror, and self reflection, the story about Greek god Narcissus is told. In this collectionKIMXGENSAPA design studio looks at the positive side of Narcissism, where appreciating and developing oneself brings out sides that were never visible. (Does that make taking selfies ‘ok’?)


With the Narcissus chair, an imaginary mirror is placed on the seat, creating a tilted ‘persiana window’ structure that has many more hidden functions.

The Narcissus library is based on the idea of having a big wall mirror that reflects a certain part of the room, and containing a hidden unit as an element of surprise.
