The Hover collection from Danish designer Kirstoffer Kjaer of Kjaer and Hoiland truly lives up to its name. The chair, bench, daybed, and sofa are firmly rooted to the ground, but appear to levitate.

The illusory furniture in Kjaer’s Hover collection is constructed with stainless steel and wood or leather.

Implications - Pieces for everyday life that bear a more whimsical aesthetic than their formalists resonate well with today's fantasy-starved consumer. The chaotic, sometimes tedious day-to-day life of many consumers causes an urge to break free and have a little fun. Innovations like those seen in the Hover Collection by Kristoffer Kjaer let consumers enjoy themselves while still enjoying a function that is necessary to daily life.
