Ferruccio Laviani Carves a Clever Illusion into His Work

At first sight, this cabinet by Ferruccio Laviani may just look like a not-so-clever illusion or trick of photography. In actuality, the artist has intentionally carved this distorted look right into the cabinet.

Ferruccio has showed incredible ability and concentration in order to pull this off. It is much more difficult to achieve this brilliantly skewed piece of furniture than to make a perfectly sound one. Just looking at the precision of the wavy and slanted lines, which somehow possess complete symmetry, really makes you appreciate the genius this man possesses -- especially to a piece with such intricate detail.

Now, whether or not this clever illusion cabinet is functional isn't much of an illusion. However, the furniture is perfect as a piece of art. Stats for Intentionally Distorted Carved Cabinets Trending: Older & Chilly
