The furniture was created during the summer 5 days workshop held by EKA Summer Academy at Viljandi in Estonia. I was attracted by the beauty of the raw-cut solid wood slabs placing inside the wood storage room.  The outline of the slabs were abstract  and looks like paper-cut by kids. The shape are artistic and energetic. The design was made by arranging different slabs together and create joineries for slotting in the wood slabs as the bench back.

FLOW is a wooden lounge chair constructed with birch plywood and solid wood. The hollow frame structure celebrates the tension and strength created by the plywood. The geometric wooden base is designed in a distinct visual language - “when curvature meets straight lines”. The void structure helps to maintain a sense of visual balance thus creating a harmonious result.

“Back to Back ” is a furniture design which targets for two persons having comfortable conversations in public space. By multiplying the furniture, it can work as a space divider in an open space.

The design achieves a “tête-à-tête” meeting simply by connecting two chairs’ backrest into one with a smooth curve which gives a sense of bonding the users. Nevertheless, the high backrest also creates a semi-open space which provides both open view or private space of two. The curve creates a perfect 120º angle to avoid embarrassing eye contact but still available to talk "face to face" by changing their body gestures.

Besides, the finishing of the single piece of the wooden backrest are designed with special color dying treatment, looks like a big natural and artistic picture from far away. When passerby sees people having a meeting there, they will get a sense of not going nearby to interrupt.

CURTAIN is a modular space divider. The shape was inspired by the energetic flow of natural sea waves. It’s boundless. Simply connecting the modules and arches in different directions to form a wavy frame that looks like standing fabric. The structure allows changes in direction as well as unlimited extensions. The distorted structure makes it possible to enjoy looking at space with a new and unique perspective.

Tower is an experimental shelf design. It is a dialogue between two different materials. A steel structure divided by a glass wall creates a mirror-like illusion. Surfaces aligned in different angles with horizontal layering form a sculptural piece that changes figure by looking at it from different perspectives.
