Growth / furniture


Modern furniture designing is developing toward a new trend,with life getting more fast-paced, people start to lay emphasis on the spiritual level of furniture rather than staying in the functional level. Therefore, I integrated feelings toward furniture into my designing, instead of isolating it in the corner. Through the process of investigation, I visited many places and recorded a considerable amount of ancient trees. I was shocked by their sinuous branches, strong and tall trunk, prosperous leaves and deep root. In order to embody the state of ecosystem, I rebuilt the shape of ancient trees by post-production and applied it to furniture.
