“Fabric” Furniture

One thing that I find particularly tricky about these precedents is how they are able to trick the eye into believing that these concrete creations are typical fabric pieces that we could find in our everyday lives. I believe that the way they are able to do that aside from getting the form right for fabric is by imposing familiar patterns into the piece that we typically would see on fabric.
