Saint-Gobain has been awarded a Janus label by the French Design Institute for its smart MIRALITE CONNECT mirror co-developed with external partners.

Recognizing excellence, the Janus de l’Industrie is awarded for industrial products that incorporate into their design particular usage value and so a real benefit for the user. In particular, the jury singled out the multi-use, interactive and adaptable features of this new mirror, the well-being it provides and Saint-Gobain’s ecological commitment.

Today, people are increasingly connected in the home. They do not want to use their smartphone in the bathroom, but they still want to remain connected. Hence the idea of designing the first connected bathroom mirror.

The MIRALITE CONNECT has a small screen with Wi-Fi connection on the right-hand side of the mirror and a remote control providing free access to a range of services: traffic information, weather, tutorials, horoscopes, news, radio, diary, and other apps.

A Bluetooth connection allows users to pair the MIRALITE CONNECT mirror to their mobile phone or listen to their playlists. They can also allow the mirror to interact with other connected objects in the home. A speaker built into the rear of the MIRALITE CONNECT delivers powerful and uniform sound. 

With its smart LED lighting, the MIRALITE CONNECT light level can be adjusted to any one of four settings and switched from cold white to warm white depending on the needs of each family member. This new mirror delivers realistic color and has a permanent anti-fog function thanks to a heating film. 

Eco-innovative, MIRALITE CONNECT protects the environment because it does not release any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) inside the home, thereby contributing to healthy indoor air. The mirror measures 75 cm high and is available on the market in three widths: 60 cm, 90 cm and 120 cm.    

Since 1953, the French Design Institute has been awarding this label to companies and local authorities with a long-term commitment to a progress approach serving people, industry and the urban environment.
