J. Robert Scott, Inc. the internationally known luxury furniture and textile manufacturer announces that the United States Patent Office has issued a design patent for the Shards Mirror.

U.S. Design Patent No. D727, 628 was issued to designer Sally Sirkin Lewis for the beveled mirror which is comprised of matte and polished stainless steel bars in various lengths, in a polished stainless steel frame. The random spacing and placement of the bars is the result of a “happy accident”. While the cardboard prototype was laid out, with the bars in an organized basket weave pattern, Ms. Lewis bumped into the frame and skewed the bars in a completely new orientation. The new look was visually interesting and complex. “This is one of those instances in which the unexpected has turned out to be a truly new take on a design,” Ms. Lewis stated.
