"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!

I for one approve of the idea, though there wouldn`t be that nice tangy flavor of the frontal lobe.

Someone needs to put circles around the f`ed up posts so that the dumbasses who DON`T see it will stop thinking they`re smart for seeing nothing wrong...

I could see right away that it didn`t look right, but it took me a while to work out WHY it didn`t look right. I can see it now, though. That`s kinda cool.

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.

The edges on the top bunk are not 90 degrees. Easy to figure out, but really unconventional design.

What, the beds are different ways? That`s the impossibly amazing trick? Some people are so simple. The top bed is just wider than the bottom, it`s not rocket science.

Look at the top right corner people.
And then follow it towards the left.

My brain hurts trying to see the Escher like quality of this bed. It looks like a completely normal bunk-bed that any human who`s grasped the concept of object permanence should understand...visually I mean. Is everyone here high?

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 wonder what it would be like if we actually perceived sight in three dimensions. Would that mean we were looking from a fourth?

I dunno, even if you follow the instructions to the [lack of] punctuation, the chances are pretty high of ending up with something like that when you mess around with Ikea.

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?

Maybe they were under the impression that their other products weren`t hard enough to construct, so they just did something completely illogical.

"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."

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.

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.

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.
