The inside of the solid wood Heritage wall mirror features 16 geometric facets, which recall the construction of a classic Alpine milking pail, or "Fahreimer".
Its exterior features another near-lost craft from the region: wood carving, or "Schnitzerei".
As Studio Seitz explain, from the 18th century onwards, as Swiss herdsmen grew wealthy from the popularity of goat's milk, their equipment was increasingly decorated with these intricate carvings. Now, the craft is only practised by five artisans in eastern Switzerland.
"We love to explore new applications for traditional methods," said Studio Seitz. "We knew that incorporating this carving tradition could round the piece out perfectly with that care and passion you don't get from mass manufacturing."
"In the end, we think we created something contemporary but still holds true to the tried and true spirit and methods of Alpine traditions."
The Heritage wall mirror is made in Switzerland from solid European ash wood, and comes in either a natural or ebonised finish.
