I’m not so keen on the Pull & Pushi’s design but the idea that a chair can be pulled out of smaller chair to give you a wider chair and side table is intriguing. It’s a great space saving idea and continues to explore compact furniture with multiple functions and dare I say, personalities?

Tobias Rehberger’s mind-bending optical illusions take up residence at a Finnish cafe

German artist Tobias Rehberger likes to shake things up. Since stepping on the scene 15 years ago, he’s turned to a variety of mediums to toy with perception, consistently challenging his audience to see the “things which cannot be seen.” His latest work transforms the interior of a cafe in Finland’s cultural capital Turku into a mind-boggling display of criss-crossing lines, an installation he conceived in collaboration with Artek.

Logomo Cafe, as it’s called, is the second collaboration between Rehberger and Artek, and a more subdued extension of the first. In 2009 the creative Finnish design studio tapped Rehberger to draw on the decorative WWI “razzle dazzle” style of painting to create a “visually disorienting environment” for the cafeteria at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni. Debuting at the Venice Biennale, the dizzying array of harsh black and white stripes and contrasting geometric furniture made for a Beetlejuice-like effect, winning him a Golden Lion award.

While the Logomo installation draws on a similar palette and stripe-obsessed sensibility as the cafeteria, this time Rehberger came up with a more airy design, using longer lines throughout the space, extending them onto the windows and accenting only with neon orange.

The Rehberger installation will be on view through 18 December 2011 at the Logomo Cafe in Turku, Finland.

I love carp and optical illusions – just a little tidbit about yours truly. The Magic Carp-pet (ha!) is a rug when viewed through a specially designed glass coffee table displays carp majestically swimming across. The technical fx uses the moire phenomenon really effectively. The graphic apparition would fit beautifully in minimalist decor, front and center as it should. Seriously John Leung, can I have one? Speaking of fish, my telescope goldfish once leapt to his death but I never found the body. I blame the dog.
