The “Purposefulness of Shadow” Chair was designed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects, Melbourne, Australia. It may be one of the most deceptive pieces of furniture ever designed. When you see this chair you may think it has 3D shadow. The designer’s message was to create the chair that would give the appearance of shadow when in reality it is actually two chairs in one. A second seat is placed under the first and gives the illusion of shadow, this seat let anyone place their coats and bags comfortably on it. As the architects say “Shadow is purposeful. Not only does this two dimensional adumbration create graphical cues, the shaded space between the shadow and the object also has numerous purposes.” This stunning chair will boggle the mind of anyone sitting on it.
