hyukjoon choi designs 'invisible' furniture to makes objects look as if they're levitating

following on from his ‘see-through shelf‘ project in 2018, seoul-based designer hyukjoon choi presents the ‘invisible’ furniture series. the aptly named collection began with the question of ‘what if furniture is invisible?’. from this initial concept, choi decided to develop shelving and storage pieces that blend into the background, making objects appear as if they’re levitating.

to design the furniture as if it doesn’t actually exist, choi has built the pieces utilizing thin layers of reflective materials. these delicate are then bridged together using small screws. on these shelves that work to connect the layers together, objects can be displayed

the furniture takes on a different aesthetic depending on the angle from which it is viewed. when viewed from straight ahead, the main elements are so thin, they make the objects appear to be floating. developed to function as both a display and shelving unit, the invisible series provides an inconspicuous design, perfectly befitting contemporary and minimal interiors.
