This coat stand by Stockholm designer Kyuhyung Cho appears to defy gravity, with a hovering metal ring keeping four diagonal sticks from crashing to the ground.
Kyuhyung Cho designed the prototype with solid metal rings at the base and the waist, connected by a diagonal steel tube.
Additional wooden poles can be slotted through the ring so garments and accessories hang from the ends.
Cho says the design was "inspired by surrealist René Magritte, to create poetic imagery in our everyday life."
The wooden poles are painted white while the steel elements are black, so the trick is revealed once the viewer takes a closer look.
Other coat racks on Dezeen include one resembling a television aerial that leans in a corner and another based on a ladder.
