the ‘visible/invisible furniture series’ by brooklyn-based designer takeshi miyakawa utilizes the material properties of mirror finished acrylic to create the illusion of disappearing chairs and tables. presented at salon 94 during new york design week, the assembled pieces are also bent and distorted with heat to create intricate wrinkle-like textures throughout the surface planes.
