This Furniture Collection Brings Fairytales to Life

What it is it isnt by Ontwerpduo dezeen 21

Dutch design firm Ontwerpduo has created a furniture line that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. The designs draw from common fantasy tropes such as magic forests, candles, and the distortion of everyday objects, from dezeen:

The name of the What It Is, It Isn’t cabinet references a quote from Lewis Carroll’s story Alice in Wonderland: “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?,” said Alice in the book.

The limited-edition wood, pewter and polyurethane cabinet is constructed to look like a traditional cabinet reflected in a distorted mirror, but in fact the cabinet itself is distorted.
