New York architecture studio Stonefox has designed a collection of sculptural, faceted mirrors that distort a viewer's likeness.

The five-piece set includes mirrors with multiple reflective surfaces edged in bright colours. Variations include models with two, three, four, six and eight facets.

Stonefox introduced the designs at the FOG Design+Art event, which took in San Francisco from 14 to 17 January 2016.

The name of the series, Identity Check, refers to how the objects are supposed to complicate views with multiple images.

The mirrored surfaces are tilted to create distorted images, reflecting objects from different parts of the room with the intention of creating "blended identities".

"Originally, it started as a design that we hoped would fracture our images as we stood next to one another – so that we became blended in the reflection," said designers Chris Stone and David Fox.

"But then we liked what was happening as we created these deep concave surfaces. At certain angles when one stands in front of the mirrors, one can only see a tiny slice of one's own likeness."

The limited-edition pieces range from hexagons and octagons to more freeform shapes, and are available with neon yellow, cyan, orange, hot pink and lavender trims.
