Wisdom / industrial design


The design concept is inspired by “books.” The product integrates the storage function of a document holder. In other words, unfolding the chair is like opening books and discovering wisdom. On chair base and seat, the geometry shapes of square and circle are adapted to the carving. The combination indicates an old Chinese proverb: “tactful wisdom and aboveboard behavior.” In Chinese culture, circle represents “tactfulness” while square frequently indicates aboveboard behavior. Moreover, the product further demonstrates the elegant environment of ancient Chinese architectures in “ancient private schools.”
