Another of Nendo‘s finest and not yet covered on the blog is the Fadeout chair with legs that appear to be fading away.

Such effect is made possible with the use of two types of material and the help of clever painting technique: while the chair’s back and seat are wooden, the legs are clear acrylic and specially painted by craftsmen so that the wood grain appears to gradually fade away until it’s gone completely.

From the designers:

Usually, our perception of furniture is strongly affected by the space around it. The fade-out chair turns this relationship on its head: we can change the look and feel of a space simply by placing the chair in it.

  1. a great visual with the white background! how will do you think the fade away works in a regular environment? 🙂

  2. Biro, the legs are acrylic and they say it’s clear acrylic, so I guess even if it might not look as cool against other backgrounds as against a white one, I guess it still provides for an interesting effect! But I would love to see this chair in a traditional room setting 🙂
