Everyone has things they hold dear, but oftentimes, we have nowhere to display them. Set them on a table and they’ll get dusty or knocked over, place them on a shelf and they’ll get lost in the mix. Studio Thier&vanDaalen designed the Showcase Mirror to not only protect your precious objects, but to display them properly. The bubbled mirror rests within a wooden frame instantly turning your items into artwork.

Iris and Ruben dreamt of capturing the temporary beauty that comes from blowing soap bubbles. The delicate nature of a floating bubble is what inspired the series, which is made when a round bubble of glass is blown into a square frame. Combining two handcrafts, glassblowing and woodworking, the two diverse materials manage to come together perfectly.

The pair worked at Van Tetterode Glas Studio together with Marc Barreda to blow the glass into the wood frames.
