DOVETAIL / furniture

DOVETAIL
DOVETAIL

The design concept of this dove-tail bench is inspired by Taiwan's historical and cultural characteristics which are conveyed from various levels in my work-- from a mundane piece of furniture to the greater element of architecture. Employing the finest carpentry skill, this piece of work also strives to renew the public's interest of this sunset industry, in hope of further promoting this almost obsolete craftsmanship. This work not only showcases Taiwan's past from its outer appearance, its underlying significance also reminds us of the undeniable but often forgotten experience the Taiwanese people went through.
