Mirrors Collective Make Their Debut With the Wrong Geometries Collection
View Slideshow

Mirrors Collective, a freshly launched designer and manufacturer of mirrors, has debuted their first collection: Wrong Geometries. Seven mosaic-like designs explore flattened planes and slightly asymmetrical shapes, creating dynamic juxtapositions with other items in a space. Hand-polished edges, along with a backing composed of recycled paper and natural resins, are eye-catching finishing touches to the collection.

In 2020, founders Reid Hoyt and Valeriy Shvetsov combined their experiences in furniture and lighting design and glass and mirror fabricating to develop Mirrors Collective. In order to keep a close eye on the details, they decided to build everything from the frames to the packaging in-house. Their process allows for more variety, customization, experimentation and shorter lead times. Valeriy focuses on craft and quality, and Reid focuses on the creative potential of the tools, techniques and materials involved.

We want to celebrate the concept of local manufacturing, not see it as a compromise.

– Reid Hoyt

Their design philosophy places lots of value on direct connections, whether that’s between the trade or private customers. Their aim is to be a blank canvas for designers, architects and others. Each mirror is made to order, allowing for further customization, with a lead time of one to two weeks.
