Maison&Objet 2013: these chairs by French design studio Ibride appear warped and uneven, but seen from a certain angle their silhouettes resemble classic designs (+ movie).

The Hidden Chairs collection by Ibride comprises three beech plywood chairs based on three historical designs.

The Hidden Shaker is inspired by the austere furniture of the Shaker religious movement.

The Hidden Terence references a typical Ming dynasty Chinese armchair with a horseshoe-shaped back.

Finally, the Hidden Wagner is inspired by the furniture of nineteenth-century Viennese architect Otto Wagner.

The furniture was shown at Maison&Objet design fair in Paris, which finished earlier this week. Other products shown at the fair included ice cream-coloured poufs and rugs and a speaker shaped like a computer's volume icon – see all products from Maison&Objet.

We previously featured a collection of 3D-printed chairs based on classic designs that were made unique by tampering with the digital print files, as well as a chair that's actually made stronger by its wonky parts.
