Furniture of the Future: A Visibly Invisible Chair

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/18703979[/vimeo]

I’m not going to claim how this could possibly work, but a fellow by the name Ben Alun-Jones has created a chair that defies both eye and imagination, which your derriere will be sure to enjoy. From a distance there is a blending of materials, which wouldn’t normally catch the eye, but up close, an object appears, revealing something not seen before.

The Affinity chair was simply an attempt to be creative with art and furniture, but it has turned into an art project of the future. The creator explains it far better than I can:

Born out of an attempt at the impossible, the Affinity chair explores our relationship with light and space. When alone, the chair merges into the background becoming almost invisible as it cloaks itself in its environment. However when approached, the chair wakes, becoming transparent, revealing hidden depths and creating an almost infinite space beneath. As the sitter comes closer to the chair, the chair’s heart rate increases reminding us that even though it wants to escape, it is firmly and almost painfully stuck in front of us.

It might not survive a day with me at my computer desk, but I must say I want one, even if it is only to freak out my friends and neighbors.
