Softwood by Veronika Wildgruber

Softwood by Veronika Wildgruber was exhibited at DMY International Design Festival Berlin and consists of a series of chairs carved from solid wood but made to appear like soft pillows. Upon first glance, they trick the viewer into thinking they are soft, comfortable chairs, but upon closer inspection you can see that they are actually hard wood. The idea behind this concept is that you cannot always rely on your perception.
