Follow Function – Save 10%
Follow Function is a unique online store because they do not carry tons of product, but what they do carry has its unique story explained in the product description, which I think is so cool – it’s like merging a store with a blog or something – super! I’ve been in touch with Jeff from Follow Function for awhile now, and we thought it would be fun to tell decor8 readers about their new mirrors, from Jeff’s perspective. So, take it away, Jeff!
Let’s get it kicked off with The Design Can’s line of Self-Portrait Mirrors. The Design Can consists of Jeannie Choe and Steven Tomlinson, two product design graduates from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. They’re still a couple of youngsters by most peoples standards, having graduated a mere three years ago. The Self-Portrait collection is a series of mirrors designed to put a self-deprecating twist on the concept of vanity. Holes are laser-cut through the acrylic leaving surprising shapes that make you double take. Have I recently grown antlers? Is that a bird on my shoulder singing to me? Did a flock of seagulls just fly past? And what is this on my forehead?! These are all questions you may be asking yourself while standing in front of a Self-Portrait Mirror. My big plan is to someday buy a house large enough where I can line up the entire collection on one wall. Because at Follow Function we’re all about conversation pieces, which is why we like to post the stories behind each of our designers. The Self-Portrait Mirrors, however, require no background info to be an immediate conversation piece. One cannot help but to position their face so as to line it up precisely with the eye patch and parrot of the Arrr Mirror. And then, one must make the person standing next to them do the same. Of course.
