Evolutionary Chair / furniture

Evolutionary Chair
Evolutionary Chair

The design upholds the economic and thrifty design philosophy of "tresure wood as gold", which utilizes the existing resources to the maximun and achieves the objective of saving resources by prolonging the product's service life. The design only uses two pieces of wood, utilizing the cutting grain to realize the bending effect, and reducing the quantity of wood boards for ordinary insertion chairs. Meanwhile, the bending property can still allow the product to be packaged flatly, and users can assemble the chair by themselves, which saves space in the process of product transportation.
