Crescent Moon Chair
Although the ever-changing appearance of furniture reflects the aesthetic pursuits of people in each period. But in the final analysis, the pursuit of functionality in furniture design for household items also reflects the great difference between the East and the West, from living habits to cultural spirit.
Chinese furniture is concerned with ” a round sky and square earth “, the armchair and the backrest are round, and the seat is square. The designer combined his research on Scandinavian furniture and his understanding of traditional Chinese furniture to design the Crescent Moon Chair.
The Crescent Moon Chair breaks the traditional circle chair square and moderate shape, combined with ergonomics. To delete the complexity and simplify, the chair is based on the traditional circle chair in the appropriate proportion to reduce and remove the back panel. The backrest is polished into a multi-dimensional change in the arc, so that the backrest and the back contact area is larger, and more closely fit the back curve.
The dual-dimensional curve of the seat is more ergonomic, the rounded backrest and armrests are integrated, and the lines and surfaces are interspersed and transformed. All of these form a sculptural form language, to meet the practical function of the premise, but also has a sense of physical beauty. The seat plate is tilted back 2cm and the seating surface is replaced with traditional intangible cultural heritage hand-made rattan weave, which is soft and comfortable.
The material of the Crescent Moon Chair is blood sandalwood, which is hard. The designer presents the leg structure of the chair as finely as possible while ensuring the stability of the force structure of the chair, making the whole chair more bone-like and ethereal.
