Twiggy Mirror by Wendell Storm

by Modculture 28 June, 2007

Looking for some functional artwork? You need the Twiggy Mirror.

It was designed by Wendell Storm for Spazia, using a classic 60s Twiggy image imposed onto a mirror. Yes, a mirror – if you can avoid Twiggy’s model glare, you can use it to check your appearance or to add a sense of space to a room.

Sized at 12-inches x 12-inches and in a brushed metal frame, it did retail for $250, but you can now pick one up for $199 (around £100).
