Designer Lefteris Tsampikakis has based the shape and structure of this unique stool on the theory of quantum mechanics.

The design of the 'Illusive Stool' is actually based upon the illustrated structure of an atomic particle, complete with electrons orbiting a nucleus. Made from a series of basic geometric shapes constructed from wood and steel, this quantum mechanic stool is simple yet unique in its overall structure -- much like the actual construction of the basic atom.

Depending on the angle, different elements of the stool are revealed to form an optical illusion for viewers. The complex yet simple nature of this orbital piece of furniture makes for a striking and thought-provoking piece of home decor.
