Rafael Simões Miranda does what he calls “Italian design through Brazilian eyes“. Chances are slim that the optical illusion pattern he used to create this interesting piece of furniture simply appeared in his dreams. This isn’t the kind of design one just conjures up. So either (a) he was aware of Akiyoshi Kitaoka’s original Snake Illusion, or (b) he was following our website from day one. Either way, check the Hypnose Sofa Rafael designed. This would be a great piece of furniture for an optometrist’s waiting room.

  3. A fine optical illusion, but I wouldn’t want it in my living room. No indeed, no indeed.

    Get drunk and then try to make love to your significant other on that couch; I dare you!

    Wow, that thing is giving me a headache just looking at it for a couple minutes here. I’d burn it if I had to spend 8 hours with it. They should put these things in prisons, people wouldn’t be so willing to go back.

    My wife would have me locked up for doing something like that. Can you imagine what it would be like with a hangover?
    The couch all but disappears against the background in the last frame where the perspective obscures the outline..

    the idea is nice, it’s only a pity that the effect only comes to life in the last picture.

    i know the intention of the pattern, but it just doesn’t work properly when it’s not flat.

    as the last picture suggests, it’s nice, but only if you redecorate your room ^.^

    That’d be a fun thing to own, of course I couldn’t watch TV with swirly things at the corner of my eye

    Cool illusion, though

  21. Shehzad Khan says:

  22. Hello says:

    my eyes! my eyes!

  23. I think if anyone look it for few minutes continuously then he will find his mind trap into some illusion. Try it as i have tried it too. Thanks for posting and really a very illusive furniture.
