Mango Series / Furniture

Mango Series

Inspired by the action of how people eat mangoes, I tend to make use of this interesting behavior and principle on objects in life which reflects the interaction between user and objects.

Mango Chair
Our hands give the strength to make fruit pulp pop out while we eat mangoes. When it comes to chairs, it is our weight that forces a geometric shaped chair to pop out its legs to bear our body, which enables us to enjoy a casual time indoors.

Mango Lighting
This lighting features two functions with the "mango mechanism" designed in it. With a simple pull, it is not only a pure shaped lighting for spotlighting, but a atmosphere lighting.
