Optical Illusion Metal Shelves
on 23 August 2016
Ukrainian designer Dmitry Kozinenko's "Field" shelving system gives the illusion that all objects placed upon it are floating, when viewed head on. Composed of bent metal rods—which create resting positions for books, vases and other homewares—the structure's subtlety tricks the eye into believing everything it holds rests upon nothing. When viewed from the side, however, all ledges are visible. It's a lovely, unexpected touch from the industrial designer.
