There are as many ways of looking at things as there are people. Acknowledging this simple fact gave us the chance to come up with fresh solutions for products that so often seem immune to any improvements. Miior’s tight knit team have been putting their efforts into approaching everyday rituals from a fresh perspective, looking for opportunities to make them more efficient and exciting at the same time. Big ideas and barely noticeable, yet revolutionary back-end features – combined to present you with a new quality vision of home. made by miior.

The brand was founded in Warsaw, Poland by two brother entrepreneurs, who decided to take their passion for invention, extensive engineering expertise and solid on-site manufacturing capacity one step further to deliver well designed home-oriented solutions.

The brand had it worldwide premiere in Paris during the Maison & Objet interior design show in September 2012 and has been enthusiastically received by its audience.

Miior’s flagship products are the inventive extendable mirrors, equipped with the AXIO-LINK technologyAXIO-LINK is a revolutionary patented hinge mechanism that allows the user to change and adjust the distance between the mirror’s reflective surface and the wall which it is mounted on. As a result, it is now the mirror that follows the user’s preferred ergonomic stance! Basic activities performed in front of a mirror now become effortless, efficient, and precise, setting a new enhanced standard for the daily facial routine. The AXIO-LINK technology has been implemented in the Al, ELLA and DOT mirrors respectively.

Throughout our lives we spend approximately 25,000 hours in front of a mirror. Due to conventional bathroom settings most people are forced to adopt an array of awkward and unnatural bent postures when using a fitted mirror. This can lead to reduced precision in performing basic bathroom tasks or even trigger unpleasant back pains. These problems have been falsely regarded as standard, mostly due to the lack of effective product solutions on the market.

Thanks to our invention of the AXIO-LINK mechanism, it is now time for the mirror to follow users’ preferred and ergonomically correct postures during their self-grooming tasks. All three lines of our mirrors have been equipped with the AXIO-LINK mechanism and a touch-sensitive LED light switch to refine overall user experience. Finally, each mirror has been uniquely styled and complemented with specially designed furniture in order to match different design expectations and lifestyles. Each model’s shape is also patent pending. AL, ELLA and DOT mirrors set a new and upgraded standard for daily beauty routines for both men and women.

AL is a modern type of mirror – it has been equipped with the AXIO-LINK patented technology that allows users to adapt/control the distance between the mirror’s surface and their faces in order to help maintain a correct posture while performing daily facial routines. Thanks to an integrated touch sensor the LED light can be turned on effortlessly at a simple touch of hand. The AL collection brings a modern look and functionality to the bathroom. With the AL mirror being complemented with a minimalist, modular shelf system, the bathroom wall is transformed into a multifunctional mosaic. Al components act like a mix and match type of minimalist decoration, with each element working well with one another in order to multiply the overall functionality of the ensemble. This idea reflects the user’s desire to be in sync with the ever-quickening pace of modern life. To be efficient. To feel self-confident. To think fast and act fast. Simply, to be modern.
