PAWPAW Drum Chair / Kids' Chairs

PAWPAW Drum Chair
PAWPAW Drum Chair

PAWPAW Drum Chair is a classroom chair for children to learn and perform drumming and pass on the skills and culture of Taiwan's aboriginal 'Amis warrior drums, awakening the sense of rhythm deeply rooted in the tribe from childhood. Children can sit backward for individual drumming, or forwards for classroom learning or group performance.
It repurposes agricultural waste, rice hulls, and pineapple leaves, and provides children with the opportunity to grow up with a sustainable cycle. The red and black colors of Amis's traditional costume and the eight-pointed star totem symbolize guardianship and prompt dialogues with ancestral spirits.
