the ‘volume’ mirror by oscar diaz can assume four different orientations as a result of a geometric network at its back, increasing the flexibility of its applications. the design is sand cast in aluminum, while the mirror is composed of polished stainless steel. ‘volume’ is being exhibited at tokyobike during the 2015 london design festival in the shoreditch design triangle.
