Benno mirror

Benno Premsela   |  1956

In 1956 Benno Premsela came up with the ingenious and simple design of the Benno Mirror. After almost 70 years, the mirror has become a real design icon.

The story goes that Spectrum asked Premsela to design a beautiful interior accessory. Premsela looked through the supplies and semi-manufactures that Spectrum already had and took out a wooden ring intended for a table. He made a slot in it and informed Spectrum his design was ready. The Benno mirror was a fact.
