Optical Illusions

Notable Works: Slip Bench (2010), Lean (2012), Slice (2013)

Much of Snarkitecture's creations play with the concept of the optical illusion. From their seemingly broken yet functional furniture to their architectural experiments with light, material, and space, the collaborative practice designs pieces that compel viewers to stop in their tracks. 

Take Lean for example, which consists of one stable floor lamp fixed to another that looks as if it is falling. Then there's Slice, an all-black tennis table that looks like it is supported by a heavy mass. But if the viewer shifts his perspective, he'll see that the "legs" are composed of thin, solid sheets made from flexible EPDM rubber and Richlite.
