Backrest Chair / household/residential

Backrest Chair
Backrest Chair

This chair’ inspiration is come from letter “Z” and made of multilayer veneers by laminating and bending technique and cutting technique. The different pierced regions do not only strengthen the sense of curve mobile feeling, but also the flexibility and tension inherent. The uniformly twine does not make the seatback flexible and soft enough, also enrich the spatial rhythmic variation. In addition, the organic-shaped metal link between the surface and the back seat, not only plays a role in connecting reinforcement, but also increase a fashion for the product. In a word, this chair is not a thing to sit on, also a exquisite art.
