The second chatting chair / Chair

The second chatting chair

The mass production of "Lo Kwo Chan" that the Chinese uses to strengthen. The structure of a chair doesn’t really exist nowdays, but we refine this technique into "The Second Chatting Chair".

Jiao, the meaning of joining together relationships between human. With "The Second Chatting Chair", people can pull closer the distance between each other, sharing points of view, and chat.

The concept comes from "Lo Kwo Chan". Using the simple and modern outer chair to hold the traditional sharing virtue inner chair is what it's about. Hence, we desinged this Chair which holds the traditional eastern virtue and the beauty of the western structure.
