4 times mirrors were used in architecture and design with amazing results
Posted in: Lifestyle

Here at Pebble Grey we have been perfecting our range of illuminated mirrors for over seven years. You could safely say that we've got an eye for innovation and design and to prove it we're showing you the times mirrors have been used in architecture and design with amazing results.

1. The Invisible House

Although modern houses are beautiful in their own way, many would argue that a new, modern house could be a scar on the landscape, sticking out like a sore thumb. The camouflage effect is achieved by using a reflective mirrored material on the exterior of the house - genius but simple idea and we LOVE it!

2. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

Although it doesn't technically exist, we could not avoid including this concept design for the museum opening in Rotterdam. With the mirrored exterior and a rooftop sculpture garden that only one word can really describe . Wow.

3. The Four-Storey Slide

Like it or not, this is real. Built within a penthouse in Manhattan, this slide goes down through all four storeys of the building. And, just to add, it is a functioning slide that residents use to navigate the house.

4. Cloud Gate

We had to include Cloud Gate, aka The Bean. Sitting in Millennium Park in Chicago, this mirrored sculpture reflects Chicago's skyline, The Bean has become one of Chicago's much loved pieces of architecture.
