There is a tradition in Japan from ancient times to give a mirror stand as part of the trousseau to the daughter who is leaving home to get married. Mirror stands with three-side mirrors were treated as a treasure for women and used for a long period of time. This tradition to bring wedding trousseau has disappeared almost completely now except in few regions of Japan. In the past, a mirror stand was placed on the tatami floor.We produced a desk with three-side mirror following this tradition of mirror stands in Japan. The desk has drawers and a simple design with little decoration not to give strong presence as a mirror stand. Mirrors on both sides can be bent to the front to see one’s face from various angles. With its simple design, it can be placed in a bedroom and a living room to be used as a desk.
