The lounge chair is made of ebonized white ash. Designed in 2019
The lounge chair design is the reflection of my research on the physical and psychological correlation between traditional Chinese calligraphy and woodworking. Inspired by the philosophy behind the traditional Chinese Four Arts, the serenity and the calmness embedded within the practice allows the rhythm to form through the motion of calligraphy and woodworking.
The gesture of the chair was developed by capturing the essence of Chinese calligraphy, and the form of the spindles mimic the simple yet elegant brush stroke. Wider surfaces of the flattened spindles surround the viewer creating a peaceful environment. As the audience moves around the chair, the negative spaces created by spindles change, which suggests movement and rhythm.
