Walking stick chair / Furniture

Walking stick chair

When it comes to the elders, we feel worry and untouchable at times. Sometimes, we even get a feeling that they are traveling slowly to the destination of life like a train. That’s why we design this chair since we want to bring novelty into their life. The chair is based on Ming Dynasty furniture since the Chinese traditional furniture has good use for reference. We use it to symbolize the authority of the elders and all their time that has gone. After that, the arm of the chair was replaced by a walking stick. It is the light-hearted jocular way we own that we use to design this chair.
