Wooden dressing table
Designed to complete the home with a touch of discreet and comfortable style, the Ren mirrors are available in the Round mirror (Ø 430 mm) or Oval mirror (280 x 1200 mm) versions, also separately, and in the table version (Ø 310 mm).

The table mirror consists of a round mirror fixed to a supporting structure with a brushed steel hook with brass finish. The free-standing mirror clothes rack consists of an oval mirror, a low shelf and two hooks for hanging clothes. The wall-hung mirror clothes rack is composed of a Canaletto walnut bar to which a round mirror, a circular key tray and two hooks for hanging clothes are attached (wall-mounting system not included). The dressing table consists of a round mirror, an oval key tray and a table top with a second in-built compartment with lift-up top in Saddle Extra leather and ring-shaped brass handle. The bottom of the compartment is covered with a saddle-leather insert.
Ren is a symbolic reference to the centrality of human beings in interior design. Armchair, sofa and a complete collection of furniture accessories inspired by the Chinese ideogram “ren”, which means “person”. The longer stroke sticks out slightly and is supported by the shorter stroke: a symbol, pure and simple, that transforms into an original design element characterising the profile of every object. When designing the elements in this series, Neri & Hu sought to maximise their versatility and adaptability to different spaces, giving people the chance to create welcoming homes with the utmost freedom. In fact, they can be used in the entrance hall, living room, bedroom, bathroom and study, but are also perfect for non-domestic spaces such as meeting rooms or waiting areas. All of the objects are made of wood, brass and saddle-leather: fine materials that are showcased thanks to the simplicity of the design.
