Hollow metal woven stool / Furniture

Hollow metal woven stool
Hollow metal woven stool

It is inspired by ancient traditional bamboo weaving process. With hardworking assimilation and transformation, this process is applied in the design of modern furniture.we are surprised to find that the structure method of mutual locking type will form several closed annular stressed areas when under stress, and the force will be scattered evenly. In fact, the single layer structure, which seems weak, has great structural strength.we creatively replace the traditional bamboo material with metal material. so it will have higher strength and durability when its lightness and thinness are guaranteed.
