Anti-g chair / stool

Anti-g chair

The concept is to transfer a traditional building construction "Dougong" into a new look.
Instead of traditional solid form, it's composed by joint lines of application points of force.
In this way, the structure of Dougong is retained and its heavy and thick look is replaced by a lighter and thinner shape.

This project combines both oriental and occidental architecture, giving the traditional structure a brand new appearance, and makes contrast with thin metal frame below and thick seat above.
