Kukka Custom Mirror


Designer Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz was commissioned by London-based Kukka Studio to design make-up mirrors for the mid-century Modern interiors of the new Bankside Hotel that opened late last year on London’s South Bank.

The mirror is made of CNC-milled premium crystal with a base of Ceasarstone’s Pebble natural rock-inspied design in a cool gray shade with subtle darker accents. 200 mirrors were ordered to finish the 161 rooms which include seven suites. The designer chose Ceasarstone because the company encourages up-cycling offcuts wherever possible. “The offcuts from the kitchen fabrication industry mostly come in smaller sizes, therefore I found it logical to find a new way to use these pieces,” says Koblenz. Since the Ceaserstone base is heavy enough to hold the mirror in place, there is no need for adhesives or mechanical fittings. It simply sits securely inside the slot.
