During the 2013 edition of Maison & Objet, French designer Marie Thurnauer presented Fold, a simple wall mirror with an unusual angle, designed for Normann Copenhagen.

The Fold mirror slopes outwardly from the wall, seeking to take the viewer by surprise and creating an extra and unexpected dimension. The mirror is attached to the wall by the accompanying sliding mounting bracket and can be hung at both horizontal and vertical angles, creating reflective different experiences.

The fixtures are completely hidden once the mirror has been mounted and the simple, angular shape and thin profile makes the mirror reminiscent of a folded piece of cardboard. Fold has three different sizes and is available in both black and white.

"I love to be surprised," remarks Thurnauer about her design. "People are used to predicting the image they are met with when looking into a mirror hanging flux with the wall but when one alters the angle, and the mirror is allowed to tilt out from the wall instead, the image becomes totally different to what a persons naturally expects and this is a surprise."
