From Warped Portrait Projects to Warped Wooden Seating

 - Nov 1, 2013
Adding a ton of visual interest to mundane objects like bookshelves, warped design is a modern and incredibly eye-catching way in which designers are differentiating their work.

Referencing a surrealist aesthetic while introducing some playfulness to a piece, viewers can appreciate the trippy look this approach to design introduces. Though often used in strictly artistic projects, the wacky look has been integrated into furniture design and other everyday objects as well. Though definitely not for everyone, this look is an effective and surprisingly sleek way to introduce visual interest.

Whether or not you appreciate a distorted look, there's no denying that these designs offer an unexpected take on things. Refreshingly modern in a way that makes you check if your glasses are working, this warped look is here to stay.
