Hold On: Tilting Furniture Series Will Blow You Away


Tilting Furniture XYZ 1

Just looking at photos of these sharply slanting tables and chairs might make you feel a bit of vertigo. The ’60′ series by XYZ Integrated Architecture looks like it’s being blown to one side by gale-force winds, tilting at a 60-degree angle. While you might wonder at first whether they’re just sculptural pieces, this furniture set is actually functional.

The ’60 red chair’ and ’60 blue table’ are made of brightly painted steel, with a design that looks unstable (especially the table, which has no visible supports.) The ’60 Console & Chair’ set is made of mahogany, with the seat and top upholstered in leather.

The playful photo series by the NakaniMamasaxlisi photo agency in Tbilisi, Georgia enhances the unusual angles with a precariously leaning model. XYZ also produced the Shamshiri cutlery set, a striking series of dining implements that fit together into a circle.
