Villeroy & Boch: New light functions for mirrors and mirror cabinets


Light is indispensible to well-being. No wonder that lamps and lighting systems are becoming ever more sophisticated. The correct illumination is crucial not just at the workplace but also in the private sphere. This is particularly true in the bathroom, which is increasingly used not only as a functional room for personal body care but also as a place of relaxation and revitali-sation. 

Through the frame of the mirror cabinet doors of the My View 14 also the washbasin below is illuminated. 

The horizontally LED light is integrated in the More to See 14. An orientation light beneath the mirror can create a diffuse illumination at night. 

With the illuminated mirror More to See 14 and the mirror cabinet My View 14, Villeroy & Boch provides two sophisticated programmes that bring functionality to the bathroom and simultaneously create a pleasant lighting atmosphere. Both programmes have now been equipped with new LED technology that allows all users to select their own personal lighting preferences. The colour of the LED light can be adjusted as desired – from warm white to cool white and back again. Furthermore, there are three brightness levels for each of the programmed light colours, allowing dimming as individually required. The mirror or mirror cabinet thus creates the right illumination and atmospheres for different situations, whether for a relaxing bath or for shaving or applying make-up. The brightness readjusts to 100% the next time the light is switched on, and the last light colour selected is automatically stored. 


The mirror cabinets My View 14 have been conceived as true all-rounders with a timeless design. They coordinate with many of the bathroom furniture collections and sanitary cera-mic lines from Villeroy & Boch and fit harmoniously into every bathroom. The modern LED lighting is integrated into both the doors as a light field. This creates optimal light quality outs-ide as the light is cast to the front in the usual way, but it also simultaneously illuminates the interior of the mirror cabinet when the door is opened. In addition the light shines most elegantly through the frame of the mirror cabinet doors, illuminating the washbasin below. 


My View 14 is available in five sizes ranging from 60 cm to 130 cm. All cabinets are 75 cm high and 15 cm deep. Both sides of the cabinet doors are mirrored, as are the sides of the aluminium cabinet body and the edges of the doors. There are also height-adjustable shelves, a magnetic strip, a magnifying mirror and a tray. With its flexible interior fittings My View 14 provides a plethora of configuration possibilities. 


The mirror programme More to See 14 comprises a total of 12 illuminated mirrors, all of which are 75 cm high with widths of 37 cm to 160 cm, thus offering a mirror solution for diverse situations from the small guest bathroom to the roomy family bathroom or generously arranged feel-good oasis. The LED lights are horizontally integrated in the top part of the mirror, providing optimal illumination. The sensor is fitted beneath the mirror where there is also an orientation light that can, for instance, be used to create diffuse illumination at night.
