The VU 200 mirror from Italian brand Tonelli Design is more a work of art than a mirror in the usual sense, as it is actually made of extra clear glass strips of different thicknesses welded together on a mirror back.
Designed by Giovanni Tommaso Garattoni each finished mirror is made up of 30cm wide panels and as well as the VU panels shown here it is possible to have 30cm wide panels of 'standard' mirror interspersed in any combination.
The VU 200 in the photo is 180cm wide & consists of 6 panels, but it can be any size you want, starting with just a single panel. There is also a smaller VU wall mirror, with 90cm high panels (a separate product).
Originally designed to commemorate 25 years of business for Tonelli Design, & presented at Salone Mobili, Milan, 2013each panel has 22 glass strips, which are positioned by hand side onto the mirror, glued together and then UV-welded. The panels are then bonded on to a black, matt lacquered wooden back.
