The freestanding press mirror by Philippe Malouin is created from a single stainless steel cylinder that has been carefully flattened and polished at one end. The design of the mirror was a coincidence when Malouin was pressing a metal tube for another project.
The cylindrical base allows the mirror to stand on its own on a surface, whilst also being small enough to function as a hand mirror. Whilst not in use, the shape of the mirror is sculptural enough for it to be admired as an object.
