Visible/Invisible, a furniture series by Brooklyn-based designer Takeshi Miyakawa, alternates between solidity and nothingness depending on where you stand. The pieces—chairs and a table—are composed of mirror-clad acrylic that is then bent and distorted by heat. When positioned just the right way, the mirrored furniture seems to disappear.
The series, shown by Salon 94 during New York Design Week, is not Miyakawa's first foray into design. The artist has worked in Rafael Viñoly's model shop for the past two decades, and was arrested last year for leaving LED-filled I [heart] NY bags around Brooklyn.
