This dressing table by London designer Florian Schmid comprises a circular mirror with a two-legged table slicing halfway across it.
The C58 Dressing Table leaves the left-hand side of the mirror free to show the user's full profile, while the flat surface extending to the right provides storage and display space for bottles and trinkets.
"Through the reflection of the object itself arises the illusion of a bigger and a three-legged table, which also looks like an artificial window," adds Florian Schmid.
The proportions and composition are echoed in a matching European ash stool and trays for organising small items like jewellery.
Schmid moved to London in August 2012 and is now based at Okay Studio, close to the Dezeen offices in Stoke Newington. We hosted his stools made of fabric impregnated with concrete at Dezeen Platform in 2011.
He presented the C58 Dressing Table and C64 Tray as part of the [D3] Contest for young designers at imm cologne last month. Other pieces on show included fold-out furniture that looks like line drawings and tiles that help a stove disperse heat more rapidly. See all our coverage of design at imm cologne.
