Artist and designer Fernando Mastrangelo has created the Escape Collection, a group of modern furniture pieces that look like three-dimensional landscape paintings.

Each piece is made from three materials – Silica, which composes the foreground, hand-dyed sand is used to suggest layers of earth and distant mountain ranges, and Crystalline, a translucent powdered glass, makes up the skies and bodies of water.

Let’s have a look some of the pieces in the collection…
