Chair You-Xian

Chair You-Xian

Description

Adapting the traditional Chinese Kaiwu concept, a contemporary bold sculpture-like bamboo chair was created that transforms bamboo into metal-like properties to achieve an honest structure and to showcase the beauty and strength of bamboo fibres. The inspirations are from The Song and Ming Dynasties’ classic official’s hat armchair with four protruding ends; it has been revamped with a modern interpretation using bamboo materials, and poses technical challenges to encourage innovations in craftsmanship.
