Sometimes simple, beautiful designs can be found right on your doorstep. That’s certainly the case with Look at You, the design brand launched in April 2021 that works with local suppliers to create elegant, large-form mirrors. The project was started by Berliners Tobias Holz und Gerald Kremer, who have teamed up with local glaziers for their made-to-order range, which includes rectangular glass in a range of sizes up to a huge 2.5m x 1.5m as well as stylish circular mirrors with circumferences of up to 1.2m. And if you don’t find a shape that fits your wall, you can order customized made-to-measure glass too.
Once you have made your choice, the team will bring the mirror not just to your door, but safely to the room of your choice. With their large size, the mirrors transform your room like few design objects can, filling the space with reflected light and transforming its look and feel. And by ordering your glass from Look at You, you aren’t just supporting local artisans, but helping to promote diversity and inclusivity in Berlin too: a share of the sale of each piece is donated to Roots Berlin, which supports the BIPOC (Black, indigenous and people of color) community. Quality, local design with a social conscience? We approve!
