The Gem mirror is equal parts form and function. This design proudly highlights both the materiality and the construction while still being highly functional. The frame doubles as a shelf for the user and the mirror is easily removable for cleaning.

P&O steel, clear mirror with aluminum backer
Joints: For this mirror, traditional woodworking joinery is used on steel. Each of the four corners sports a box joint connection and has no visible welds.
Mount: The mirror is mounted on an aluminum backer that has magnets for mounting the mirror into the steel frame that is cleverly hidden behind the mirror itself so that it appears to be floating within the frame.
