Tube Map Mirror
The London Tube Map is probably the most iconic schematic* map ever drawn. Despite being topographically inaccurate, this lifeline to understanding how to go where in London has become a classic work of art. Nowhere has it been better represented than in this achingly cool wall mirror from those award wining London designers at Suck U.K. The London Underground map was the brain child of Harry Beck (a London Transport employee in 1931) who realised that drawing an accurate map of the tube system would just confuse the heck out of us all. His graphic schematic (which rhymes so beautifully) has become famous the world over, and been copied again and again for other underground systems all over the planet. This sizeable 75cm long mirror comes with steel wall brackets and screws for mounting, and is quite possibly the most chic hall or wall mirror in circulation.
*Schematic means it's a representational diagram, as opposed to a topographical map (i.e. it's shape bears no relation to reality).
- Solid glass mirror with gold-coloured depiction of the London Underground Map.
- The designer's clever screen printing process creates the illusion that the mirror itself is etched with the map.
- All zones featured on the Tube Map.
- Steel brackets and screws for wall mounting are included.
- Makes a trendy but functional room feature for 'Londonites' and Train spotters alike.
- Size: 75 x 52 x 0.6cm
This product is glass so you know the drill... don't go throwing stuff at it, it's fragile.

Great piece of design!
I am living in London and I am always in a rush and often late. At least now thanks to my new mirror,once I have closed my laptop ( and forgot to check TFL website) I can rely on my giant map! and check my make up at the same time :)
