Randon says:Four years ago, I was working with mirrors and LEDs in my spare time making infinity mirrors. Dazzled by the illusion the mirrors created, I knew I could create a unique product. This is how Fool Me came into existence. The design itself went through many different forms based on what tools I had available to use to manufacture it. Finally, instead of designing Fool Me around what tools I had available, I decided to design it as I had always wanted. Because I did not have the proper tools, I was okay with waiting until they would become available.

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati for Electrical Engineering in 2012, I began working with a company as an Automation Software Engineer. There, I was given the opportunity to work with CNC water jet machines. I designed Fool Me with 3D CAD software and thus was able to arrange all of the required parts for two tables onto a single sheet of plywood. Then, I took the part arrangement and converted it into a G-code file for the water jet machine to cut. The file took 1 hour and 45 minutes to finish cutting, leaving me with everything I needed to build two, one of a kind coffee tables.

With the parts in hand, all I had to do was assemble them. This process was quite easy as I had designed everything to fit together like a puzzle. With all that parts in hand, assembling and wood finishing only takes a few days to complete. After assembling the parts, I chose the colors. The legs of Fool Me needed to stand out so that it looked just as amazing with the lights turned off as it did with the lights turned on. After assembling and painting the table, I began wiring the lights. Fool Me uses RGB LEDs with a power source that can be controlled via a wireless remote or a phone app to change the color and/or fading of colors to whatever the user desires.

When approaching the table, allow yourself to be lost in the effect of this extra dimension. In doing so, you will be fooled into believing that maybe this world is not just what we can see or explain but something much more. This is Fool Me.

Randon's design started as an idea worth waiting for, but became a reality thanks to CAD technology. Read more about how Fool Me evolved from a concept to a reality, then tell us whether it has your vote.

A beautiful design with such a unique twist! The illusion of looking into a table and it looks as though it goes into a tunnel with pretty lights. I love it. Great job!!!

You're missing the point of the contest Rick. It's for the design. Obviously a coffee table, sofa, or bookshelf isn't the most original concept but the designs in this contest are. And I disagree with you. Infinity tables are not "common". I can't remember the last time I saw one at any furniture store I've been to.
