A standing mirror based on a delicate and minimalistic interplay of lines.
The Tangents Mirror is playful in its simplicity. The inclined connections in the metal frame seem playful, yet at the same time, they are functional. Because the frame at the back of the mirror leans nonchalantly against the wall, it makes it very easy for the mirror to stand.
In addition, the frame provides space for a number of clothes hangers. The wooden shelf on top is a natural accent and provides space for small objects.
A subtle, graphic and functional design, suitable for different rooms.
The frame of Tangents Mirror is available from stock in RAL9017 traffic black and RAL7004 signal grey, custom colours are available on request.

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.
For us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!
We'll tell you the whole story. Click on the buttons to discover the different steps:
The Tangents Mirror was designed by Jenna Postma. Jenna has her own studio for interior and product design in Utrecht. Her design style is characterized by simplicity, playfulness and a passion for details. In a narrative way, she translates her imagination, her amazement at the seemingly mundane and a fascination for patterns into user-friendly and aesthetic concepts. Material, colour and shape create a warm and natural atmosphere.
Jenna's inspiration for the design of the Tangents Mirror comes from the Rietveld Schröder House in her hometown Utrecht. In her eyes, a graphic playground of lines!
"What I like most is that the interior is primarily designed to be functional, just like the Tangents Mirror."Jenna Postma
The Tangents Mirror has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2021. The mirror fits very well in the Vij5 collection because of its graphic design in combination with its functional aspect. What we find interesting is that the mirror can easily be placed in different rooms and quickly moved, without damaging the wall. For example, think of a bedroom, bathroom, hallway, or even a hotel room. Items such as a scarf or a clothes hanger hang casually on the coated metal frame. Handy to air your clothes or to hang them ready for the next day!
The Tangents Mirror is part of a larger series of Tangents furniture that Jenna tailors for both private and business clients. By combining the coated metal frames with shelves of acrylic or solid wood, cupboards, tables or any other piece of furniture can be made to measure. This is also how a commission for a mirror in the same series arose. After a period of sketching and making models, Jenna translated the Tangents concept of slanting lines into a mirror design. By playing with simple lines, the result is a self-supporting mirror.
The Tangents Mirror is produced entirely by hand in the Netherlands. The square metal tubes are made to measure and welded together. Then the frame is powder-coated. Finally, the mirror is glued to the frame. The wooden shelf is milled to size and finished with Osmo hard-wax oil.
