Silhouette Seats: Eye-Tricking Shadow Chairs Defy Gravity

The idea isn’t new, but the theme is reprised here with a great deal of fun and experimentation: two-legged seats, seemingly supported by nothing at all, in fact held up by fake shadows they cast.

This time it is Duffy London driving the designs, toying with basic shapes in various materials and colors (white, wood, metal and more), but going beyond that as well.

The long shadow is one such push, as is the wolf shadow – perhaps a bit kitschy, but certainly entertaining and a talking piece if you can stand having it around the rest of the time.
