Magica Gravity-Defying Chairs by Davide Conti

Designed by Italian designer Davide Conti, the Magica and Magica2 are chairs that appear to defy gravity. When you first get a glimpse of these super minimal chairs, you wonder how in the world they stand up, much less how they hold a person up but upon closer inspection, you realize they are outfitted with clear Plexiglas.


The white and black seats and backs of the chairs are also made out of Plexiglas defining each piece with simple, rigid lines. The clear Plexi gives each chair the support it needs while providing the illusion that it’s floating in mid-air.
