Instead of repairing old broken wooden furniture to look as if it's just been made Tatiane Freitas uses transulent acrylic to do the job as part of an ongoing series titled “My Old New Chair”, the end result of which is the optical illusion style chairs you see below.

The method that Tatiane uses can be compared to the the Japense art of repairing broken pottery with various materials sch as gold, silver and platinum known as kintsugi. Rather than hide the visible battle scars and breakages of chairs Tataine chooses to embrace them, making for some truly unique pieces of furniture. You can see more of her work on her website and over on Instagram.
