ONE DAY CHAIR
A contemporary chair designed inspired by Chinese culture. The chair is made out of fresh cut bamboo and the process of collecting, preparing the material, produce it with traditional craft methods and start using it, is made locally in the village with in a period of 8-10 hours.
I came to China and Yuhang Rong Design Libraray as a designer in residency with the idea to work with bamboo. After material research and meetings with different producers I saw the local craftsman with a small set of hand tools make a traditional bamboo chair in less than two hours. In that moment the idea was born.
