    "you all are idiots if you don`t get this picture.... its an impossible design, look at where the bottom connects to the top bed."

    Nope. It`s possible. Naturally, we assume that a bed is supposed to have four right angles, but if this is indeed a real design, the top bed clearly doesn`t. WHY anyone would want this is beyond me. The angle that the picture is taken makes it look like some sort of optical illusion.

    Eichler? Think that`s spelled wrong... Escher doesn`t even sound like it has an l in it. Oh, and this looks like it could be possible, if you just make it so that the top bunk only connects to the bottom in the first two places, and it just seems to connect in the back two.

    Your wrong Msieg007, if you look at the points the lower bunk connects to the upper it`s a physical impossibility.

    I`ve never seen realistic looking escher style stuff. that`s pretty awesome.

    C`mon now, all the smart people already knew this, the guy is just trying to explain why its supposed to be amusing, cause of the earlier posts probably, they seem to have been posted by morons.

    I don`t get it. The top bunk is perpendicular to the bottom one. The ladder goes from the side of the bottom one to the part of the top one that overhangs the side of the bottom one. Why is that weird?

    IKEA once again makes a piece of furniture that on the outside looks nice but once you get it home is impossible to make. and @ shunpo, yes. That would mean that we were looking from the 4th dimension. Give yourself a cookie and a pat on the back. =D

    I worked out how it is, the picture is taken at an angle, therefore the two post that confuse you aren`t actually connecting to the bottom bunk.

    Me thinks they are actually cut off short so they look like they connect perfectly.

    It`s a bit hard to explain this in words, sorry.

    "easy enough to build, and to use perspective to shoot the image ffs"

    Even easier to alter the image using photoshop.

    I can see how they could build it but have the two posts not connected and then put at such an angle that it looks like it`s connecting (although the bed would be so dangerous that no one would ever be brave enough to sleep on it) thereby creating an optical illusion, but it`s a lot simpler and easier and cheaper to just alter an already existing image of a normal bed with photoshop.

    THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION IS USUALLY THE RIGHT ONE, PEOPLES!
