Translating to “The Ultimate Strawberry”, the Ultrafragola Mirror was originally crafted by Italian architect, designer, and legend Ettore Sottsass in 1970 and is now available in a 2019 reproduction. The gorgeous décor piece is framed in rippling pink Opaline plastic with some nickel-plated brass and is said to pay ode to a woman’s sensuality.
