Strength of 40 / Strength of 40-Bamboo stool

Strength of 40
Strength of 40

There's an old saying goes in Chinese” one chopstick can be broken but the 10 chopsticks”,which can explain that unity is strength. The chair of “Strength of 40” built of 40 bamboo strips and 5mm iron which can load 80kg. The shape of the chair is a sheep,that I want to say is a little sheep can also defeat the wolf because the unity is strength.
Using the original bamboo to show the beautiful original texture is always what I love to do. Because of vertical fiber of bamboo,I can shape it like a question mark and getting a stonger structure.
