Ghost Chairs: Unique See-Through Polyester Sheet Seating



Ghost Chairs: Unique See-Through Polyester Sheet Seating_image Click image to enlarge
Just a few millimeters thick, each of these translucent seats is the simple result of draping and drying specialized sheets of polyester over a plastic mold, which in turn was cast from the shape of a normal living room chair.

Valentina Glez Wolhers makes both the original plastic shapes and the final furniture pieces, each of which is different from the next. Every act of casting a new form has different results, and on top of that (literally) each draped sheet takes on slightly different folds and curves.

Perhaps more interesting than the strange shapes themselves are the curious ways in which the curved surfaces distort light and proportion behind them, much like a fun-house mirror or fish-eye lens.
