Holy S**t! This Mind-Bending Furniture Is Not What It Seems.

Sometimes two dimensions just aren't enough

There was always that kid in class who not only knew all the answers, but managed to ask questions that would never even occur to other students.

We’ll venture that designer Jongha Choi was that kid in his classes growing up.

As part of his thesis project at Eindhoven Design Academy in the Netherlands, Choi examined the relationship between a flat image and how it’s perceived and experienced by viewers, particularly in a time when ever-advancing 3D printing technology and photo processes have altered that relationship for good.

The result of his exploration is De-Dimension, a collection of collapsible furniture that can hang flat against the wall to create a trippy optical illusion, or be unfolded to create  the functional version of itself.

An impressive feat in a field that is always arguing about and blurring the lines between form and function.

We can tell you one thing for sure, our student work did not look like this.
