The 2450 White chair by Junpei Tamaki is an optical illusion. The chair can look solid white or translucent depending on the amount of light fixated on it. This beautiful seat is made by glueing 2450 acrylic stick pieces together with each individual piece measuring at 5 millimeters long.
It looks risky to sit on this fragile-looking chair but don't let that fool you; it can support almost any weight. The 2450 White chair is astonishing as it portrays a fragile piece of art with a translucent, clean cut and minimalist design. It sits well in a contemporary environment where art intertwines with furniture.
The 2450 White chair by Junpei Tamaki won the Interior Design Prize at the Asahikawa International Furniture Design Competition in 2011.
