Are you looking for something a bit more eccentric in the furniture department but believe you’ve seen it all, from weird organic blobs to super minimalistic corian items? It appears that furniture design has had an unexplored side in the ‘furniture that seems to bend under the force of a hurricane’ category.

Design studio XYZ Integrated Architecture, based in Tbilisi, Georgia, has created the ’60’ series, a collection of hand made pieces of furniture that defies functional geometry by swaying them from the vertical axis at a 60 degree angle. The visual effect is stunning, making these objects appear to run into hyperspace.

The pieces were produced as unique prototypes and come in painted steel (60 Red Chair and 60 Blue Table) and also mahogany, upholstered with shiny brown leather (60 Console and Chair).

I personally loved the photography that emphasises the concept of tilting bodies by visually enriching it with perspectives of oblique shading and human presence. The ’60’ series have first been released in 2011, therefore it is possible that the prototypes are being displayed in a private collection by now. If you’re a design enthusiast though, it is well worth making an inquiry about their availability, as they are truly unique and will never fail to impress.
