A word like "multifunctional" hardly seems to describe the elegant utility of this full-length mirror from the carefully considered Umage debut furniture collection. One More Look allows for a head-to-toe view in its marvelously minimalist frameless mirror—with the added touch of a second hand-held mirror for closer inspection, stored in the colored side cabinet. A further thoughtful addition by designer Jonas Søndergaard is a leather tray fitted into the cabinet for storing things like keys, makeup, sunglasses or a billfold.
46" h x 31" w x 6" d (116.8x78.7x15.2cm)
A complete One More Look mirror consists of 2 items: 1 mirror, shelf and cabinet unit and 1 painted cabinet front. Individual items can also be ordered separately.

Not many people would give a successful brand a name-changing reboot but that’s exactly what Søren Ravyn Christian did with Umage, which aptly translates from the Danish as making an extra effort. Formerly lighting label Vita Copenhagen, the relaunched company also branched into furniture, boldly debuting 15 pieces in a single swoop. For Søren, it’s all about problem solving: “Our design ethos is to look at a design and think how can we make this functional?... How can we make the annoying and unattractive, functional and attractive?”
The answer is range of thoughtful offerings, from the feathered Eos pendant light to the sculptural Reader chair and multipurpose Lounge Around seating. All Umage products are flat-packed in stylish boxes, to simplfy global logistics, make the products more accessible and minimize the carbon footprint. “It means putting in the extra effort with all our designs and the whole journey and process of that piece,” Soren says. “It means being clever with packaging so we are not shipping something across the oceans that is 90% air.”
