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.
