Inspired by traditional Chinese armchair and Marcel Breuers’s No. B33 chair, the Modern Chinese armchair seeks to disrupt the world of furniture design. By utilizing the CNC process technique, this chair is able to preserve the look of a traditional Chinese armchair but overcome the typical construction process, where wood pieces had to be connected through woodworking joints. Instead of the usual angular shape, the modern armchair possess a fluid and seamless form, mimicking the artistry and beauty of calligraphy strokes.
