Project Description

The design is focused on its function, where the user would sit upright on the chair and his/her upper-body weight be perfectly supported through the height of the chair, the backrest at the waist, and the armrests. The curvature of the slightly bulging backrest embraces the body; this waist-supporting chair design offers supports for the human body, so that tensions around user’s shoulders, neck, waist, and limbs would all be relieved – user would be welcomed with a comforting sensation similar to a hug.

When producing a hereditary chair, what is more important than ensuring its functions is finding ways to incorporate visual aesthetics. Through enhancement of overall structural system, a unique arc structure is used as the support that connects the legs and the seat of the chair. The design is further complemented by the mortice and tenon joint as the reinforcing linkage between parts, bringing betterment to the complex composition found in old-fashioned traditional furniture. In addition to strengthening the chair’s mechanics system, a simplistic and spiritual appearance is thereby created for the chair.
