Modern Vanity Mirrors with Nostalgic Inspiration
View Slideshow

Lebanese designer Richard Yasmine debuted a collection of geometric hand mirrors for the Sursock Museum in Beirut. Ashkal is a series of modern vanity mirrors meant to reflect our souls as we bask in our own memories or to conjure up another era, like the early 60s when the museum first opened.

Ashkal, which means shapes or faces, are represented by the flat, geometric shapes of each of the mirrors, which are made of super-mirrored polished stainless steel sheets that are fixed atop of a golden brushed brass base. The various shapes, a circle, a square, a rectangle, an oval, a pentagon, and a triangle, reference the stained glass that decorates the museum’s facade.
