Geometric Coat Racks Play Tricks on Your Eyes

These coat racks are deceiving. On first glance, you can't quite tell if they're 2D or 3D, as if you'd lost all depth of field.

The collection—designed by John Tony from +tongtong—is called Les Ailes Noires. It includes 11 different geometric-shaped racks that are supposed to stand alone and lean against the wall or lie on a flat surface. They're so simple, but the way they react to light and shadow draws your eye to them. If only geometry had been this interesting—and practical—when you were learning it in school. More here.
