jaro kose’s ‘rapunzel mirror’ revives childlike play

 

Designer Jaro Kose introduces his quirky and equally delightful creation, the ‘Rapunzel Mirror’, which he describes as ‘an object for every adult who wants to go back in time to find, or feed, an inner need for joy and play.’ As we grow older, we tend to lose touch with our inner child; comments like ‘you’re too old for this’ and ‘this isn’t proper’ do a great job at severing that tie even more. But Kose remind us that happiness comes from cultivating our childlike curiosity and sense of wonder through playful outlets like his nostalgic mirror design

experimenting with endless customizations

 

The ‘Rapunzel Mirror’ by Jaro Kose (see more here) is designed as a fully functional vanity object with endless possibilities of customization available for anyone who decides to share their brushes, hairpins, and ribbons with the mirror. ‘You can also take out your scissors and cut off Rapunzel’s blonde hair to give her a new look. Most importantly, perhaps, while creating and testing new hairstyles, Rapunzel starts to feel more and more human. Like an imaginary friend. Maybe there’s no space for another Barbie doll on your desk, but there’s definitely space for a piece of Rapunzel in your heart,’ shares Kose.
