If it needs much effort to change a city, let's start beautification just from a street corner!
α Stool & ơ Table are placed between outside and inside of a flower shop at a street corner (Taichung Taiwan). “α” provides pedestrians stay/sit on, and “σ” is hung on the entrance space of the flower shop as a reception desk. Both supply an aesthetic streetscape for the city.
Awareness of environmentally friendly, to steam-bend and utilise FSC local forest trees are a motivation of creating this pair of nature installations. Steam-bending tree is not only like performing a magic trick, but also performs eco ways of work in progress.
