Häfele for the Contract: multi-function mirror and accessories in black finish

Häfele presented at Architect@Work Milano, the international exhibition dedicated to innovations and aimed at architects, interior designers and professionals of the sector, the latest news in its range for the Contract: the new multifunction mirror and the main accessories for the hotel room in black finish.

The Häfele product range for the hotel includes a wide choice of accessories and mechanisms, such as handles for entry and bathroom doors, electronic control of Dialock accesses, LED lighting systems, audio devices controlled via Bluetooth and systems for the organization of wardrobes and closets. All these Häfele accessories, from the DT 700 door terminal for electronic control of access to handles, to wardrobe hooks, to towel racks, are designed to fit perfectly in any environment thanks to the wide availability of trendy shapes and finishes. Among the latter stands out the modern black finish, presented at the fair and produced to respond to contemporary design trends.


The Häfele multifunction mirror: light, sound and demisting function

The new Häfele mirror is a product with multiple functions: it is a mirror, of course, but it is also a multimedia tool. In fact, it combines four functions in a single product of excellent quality.

The mirror unit is equipped with direct light, particularly suitable for make-up because it effectively reduces the shadows that are projected onto the face. Indirect lighting, on the other hand, contributes to providing the right atmosphere thanks to the audio components that can be controlled via a tablet or smartphone. The mirror is also equipped with demisting function, which prevents the glass from tarnishing in particular conditions. After 45 minutes the function is automatically deactivated, entering standby mode.

Its elegant design and the convenience of the integrated functions make this mirror perfect both in a hotel room and in a domestic bathroom. The front light is equipped with a scene memorization function, an above-average colour rendering index and the colour temperature can be changed from cool to warm white.

The Sound System is controlled via smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth; the light and demisting control functions are managed using the backlit touch keys. The product is certified with IP44 protection against splashes of water.

The Häfele multifunction mirror is available in the following dimensions: 900 x 600 mm, 900 x 900 mm and 1200 x 900 mm. It is easy to install because the mirror unit, developed entirely by Häfele and made up of over 65 individual components, is delivered pre-assembled.

This product was awarded the Top Hotel Star Award 2018 in the Design category.
