Things that encircle us exist so naturally as a matter of course. Surrounding friends, families, everyday clothes, furniture, house, air and etc. They stand so instinctively that we don’t have any doubt about their existence. On the contrary, we forget their presence by regarding these existing objects with indifference. I decided to guide the forgotten beings among us back into reality. In order to do that I designed an invisible object for people to look around their neighboring area and to introduce a fresh view of it.

Therefore Invisible began with a concept of ‘what if a furniture is invisible?’. To make the furniture be considered as if it doesn’t exist though it actually exists, a space has been made with thin-layered reflecting materials. Even though the front, rear and new spaces reflected through the materials are totally separated from one another, new spaces can be discovered by connecting the reflecting parts of thin layers of the furniture. A Silhouette of the furniture can be described in different ways by the way you see and it can also cause an optical illusion of an object being floated when the object is displayed on the shelf.
