Pleats Chair

Furniture - Chair


Fur Wood

The pleats furniture collection is the extension of the craft project Wood Pleats. The collection consists of a chair and a side table. It will further expand into a broader series of furniture applied with the Wood Pleats carving technique. The surface texture visually links with the lake waves, which was part of my research observations on the Finnish summer cottages. The waves were gentle and slowly moved toward the shore. The waves spread horizontally and reached the destination that was out of our vision. The calmness that emerged from the phenomenon comforted the viewer’s inner peace. In the case of the Pleats Chair, I expressed the introspective feeling by creating it with simple and basic geometry. Shallow curves and unobvious tapers are subtly employed and dedicated to present the peace of nature. The wood grains are directed horizontally on all the surfaces corresponding to the waves. The wood grains smoothly transited from the seat top to the backrest. The wood grains appear almost seamlessly. All these considerations are whispering to the user instead of making a statement.
