Dovetail / Bench

Dovetail
Dovetail

The tranditional building structure in Taiwan ,there is a special eave style called Dovetail. It looks like a swallow's tail, and it protracts toward the sky. In the culture of Taiwan, it symbolize honor and noble. The design combined a bench and the trandtional building style which is in oblivion, that to create the total different furniture from before one. We hope that we can convey the culture to next generation and then pass down. And let the swallow soar in the sky again.
