Which way is the chair facing in this mind-bending optical illusion? It’ll leave you stumped

A MIND-BOGGLING optical illusion has left viewers scratching their heads trying to figure out how it works.

The confusing visual was posted on social media site Reddit by a username who posts under "IranianGenius".

It shows a black chair in the middle of a white room in what seems pretty straightforward so far.

Reality then starts to warp as a man comes in from out of shot and sits on the chair – but from a completely different angle to which you thought it was facing.

Don't believe us? Check it out for yourself.

The chairs were created by French design studio Ibride, according to Dezeen.

An explanation for the illusion shows that the chairs were intentionally designed to appear warped and uneven.

However, when seen from a specific angle, our eyes are tricked because their silhouettes resemble classic designs.

The Hidden Chairs collection by Ibride is made up of three beech plywood chairs each based on a historical design.

Optical illusions show images that differ from normal reality but the information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a certain perception.
