Is EXYD-M always beautiful?
No. The appearance of EXYD-M depends on the reflected objects. EXYD-M needs “something” to reflect. EXYD-M above a black floor without any lines, without any second color looks like a “boring black whole”. EXYD-M becomes “alive” as soon as “something” is reflected, for example gaps between floor tiles, ornaments of a carpet, window frames, wallpaper pattern.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. EXYD-M is available uncolored und colored in champagne, gold, rose-gold, bronze, grey. Champagne gives the stainless steel a certain warmth, gray a hint of mysticism. However, EXYD-M is a mirror that mainly takes on the color of the reflected objects.

Was there anything similar before EXYD-M?
After inventing EXYD-M, we discovered that the Italian company Marzorati Ronchetti made something like this before – by hand! Unfortunately, after more than ninety company years the manufactory is no longer on the market – we would have loved to cooperate with these masters. We later learnt that we both worked 2009-2011 for the upper floors of Frankfurt's Twin Towers: they produced the wall cladding, we made the ceiling panels; and later again 2010-2012 for the business lounge of the airport in Doha: they made the furniture, we produced the cladding of the spiral staircase and the ceiling.
Does EXYD use customer numbers or order numbers?
No. Every customer, every project is named as it is – individual. For tax reasons, we use invoice numbers.
