Having installed quite a few mirrors into ‘the improvised life’s’ new laboratory, we’ve witnessed first-hand how quickly they show fingerprints and smudges, along with a streaky glare acquired a week or so after being cleaned. We’ve also been experiencing how much “shows” on or white high gloss doors and walls – and they don’t come close to mirror-like.
So we took one look at Mikiya Kobayashi‘s mirrored Lacus credenza and thought: Are you CRAZY?!!!
While the birch branch knobs are charming, and the idea of having a mirrored face is interesting (possibly creating an illusion of more space), this credenza would be an on-going disaster, rife with the demand to be constantly polished…not what we want to be doing with our time.
What do you think?
Stay-tuned for an upcoming post about high design from a housekeeper’s point-of-view.
