He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

Kartell François Ghost Mirror
Jennifer from Burlington, ON– Verified Buyer
Super gorgeous mirror! Very easy to hang. Just be careful, the plastic frame scratches easily.
Rob from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
Just installed 5 of these in a recent home remodel project. The clear are amazing against a tiled wall allowing you to see the Porcelanosa tile detail through the frame.

Bought this with clear frame to replace my overly decorated fussy mirror . It completely changed my entryway . Gives clean contemporary updated look to entire entry which opens up into large living room. This mirror can fit into any decor.
Great mirror - delivery was terrible
natasha Jakubowski from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
Mirror was great but when it was delivered it was just left in the elevator of our building rather than bringing it to our door. It's a big mirror and I'm pregnant so was pretty horrified that the delivery service would do this, especially as apart from getting me into trouble with the building, it also meant that i had to carry it from the elevator to my apartment.

I ordered the small purple one, and it goes great to add some color to the room. You cant quite tell from the picture but the frame is transparent (hence the name Ghost mirror), so even in stark colors it doesnt look out of place.

great mirror in purple
luvs miami from Miami FL– Verified Buyer
The mirror was a replacement because something splashed onto the mirrors frame and caused permanent white marks.
Quite striking. Unique but simplistic.
Modern accents from Santa Fe
I have this mirror in the large / crystal (clear) finish. It is stark and simple. Hanging above the fire place I need to have vases and flowers around it as the mirror blends into wall. It's a great look but in the clear frame better as an accent mirror, not a focal point. At 15' feet away I also find that human figures are elongated, not distorted. Up close it is very clear.
