1.Cloud and Dragon Chair

Wen Hao, 2011






The 'Cloud and Dragon Chair' is inspired by the cloud and dragon motifs on ancient bronze ware and jade accessories. The shape is redesigned from the classic round-backed armchair. It has the perfect balance between the practicality and ornamental, regional and international, 'creating art from art'.



2.Teacher’s Chair  (Fu Zi)
Wen Hao, 2011






The ‘Teacher’s Chair’ is a modern design inspired by traditional Chinese armchair (Guan-Mao-Yi). The cylinder tubes form the skeleton of the chair. The curve shape on the sides and the resilient steel back create a beautiful shape and make it suitable to use in the study room. It symbolises the spirit of uncorrupted scholars and officials who have nothing but winds under their sleeves.
