The bench is made of solid Black Walnut. Designed in Dec. 2017.
The design is inspired by Guqin (See image shown below), a seven-string Chinese music instrument. The perspective form leaves a dynamic visual impact and represents the cutting edge of the contemporary design. The seven linear slats, symbolize seven strings on Guqin. It allows light to travel through the bench, increase the visual lightness of the piece.
More importantly, round brass pins create a visual correlation of “Hui”, the thirteen-circular inlay of mother of pearl on the Guqin surface, represent the 13 lunar months of the year. These pins are to reinforce the bench structure and emphasize the design in contrasting of different materials. Last but not least, the seat slat shape is carefully considered to achieve the ergonomic comfort.
