Shopping List: A Mirror Made with Upcycled Counter Tops

It's designed to look like the sun setting over the mountains.



 

Edmonton-based Ryan Spotowski, the designer behind Ryspot Design, is the third generation in his family to work with concrete, which he sees as more than just an industrial material. Rather, he considers it the perfect medium for creating beautiful home decor and furniture pieces. “I enjoy that concrete comes alive for a very short period of time when you can do anything with it,” says Spotowski. “It’s like photography, where you’re physically creating something in a very short period of time, but with a more tactile product.” The Concrete Terrazzo Mountain Mirror ($90) was inspired by the beauty of the sun setting over the mountains and is crafted using upcycled countertops to provide the pieces that are suspended in the concrete terrazzo. “The mirror allows the user to be that beautiful sun over the mountains and to reflect on themselves,” says Spotowski.
