An Arc-Shaped Stool Designed By Min Chen
- Jessica Jungbauer
Chinese designer Min Chen created the ‘Hangzhou stool’, a furniture piece that is made of various layers of bamboo wood. To create a comfortable seating experience, the bent wooden veneers are glued together on both sides and feature an arc-shaped elastic design. On the construction of the piece, the designer says: “When sitting down, the more weight the stool receives, the deeper the arc will be bent in the center, and therefore the more elasticity the user will feel.” Min Chen himself was born in Hangzhou, China and specializes in industrial design.
