String Chair / Home Furniture

String Chair
String Chair

String Chair is a collection of home furniture with the back and seat surface made by knitting strings.
Unlike the mass-production modern chairs, String Chair remains part of it undone for users to create personalized patterns themselves, utilizing colourful and elastic strings.
As the seat back, knitted patterns can also be used to hang different things in people’s daily life, which makes them handy to fetch.
With its neat and simple appearance, visualized and personalized colorful patterns, and light-weight feature, String Chair can bring a lot to users both emotionally and functionally.
