laszlo tompa: illusion box

‘illusion box’ by laszlo tompa

this sculptural wooden box by laszlo tompa was produced through CNC woodturning and finished by hand.

at first glance, it’s not really visible that the cherry wood form is a relatively large storage unit due to the optical illusion of the ornaments, and in terms of pattern, the case is diagonally symmetrical, so the storage section can be covered with the lid rotated 180 degrees.’ – laszlo tompa
