Inspired with a dedication towards traditional crafts, the design utilized here makes a contribution towards integrating fast-disappearing traditional Taiwanese crafts into the realm of product design, in an attempt to find a new solution where these two realms of knowledge meet. The processes and techniques involved in handicraft creation are integrated into furniture design both as a means to increase elements of local culture and depth found in the product, and to facilitate continuation of this traditional craft by drawing more attention to it.
