HAY and Inga Sempé’s Ruban Mirrors are a range of ribbon-edged mirrors. The oak frame is wrapped with colourful ribbon that softens the edges and also functions as a loop for hanging. Available in a number of different sizes and colours that can be hung individually or arranged in a cluster.

‘Inga is original and fun, and she manages to incorporate that combination into her products, which always contain a new and surprising angle. We are very proud to have Inga Sempé on board.’ Mette Hay With her intellectual arts background, French designer Inga Sempé is no stranger to the creative domain, but her approach to the design field is unconventional and driven by an explorative and entrepreneurial energy. Inga Sempé’s working process is guided by intuition, and the first stage is always drawing by hand. ’I don’t take a structured approach in my design process but gradually work my way into a given task by drafting. What inspires me most is knowing that people use my objects in their everyday life. That is where my focus lies. Creating simple designs with a light feel, which, hopefully, will add something new to people’s daily life.’ Inga Sempé is fascinated with small objects and tools, because they can be moved around, and because tools in turn can be used to make new things. Screws, nuts and bolts therefore play a special role in Inga’s expression. This slightly nerdy side coupled with her artistic and intuitive creativity leads to new and innovative products. All Inga Sempé’s sofas, lamps, tables, clocks and now HAY’s Pinorama and Letter Boxes thus reflect her subtle, unrestrained and tactile design approach with a unique and personal expression that many international top brands have noticed and embraced.
