This set of furniture design gets inspiration from China's traditional educational toys, Kong Ming Lock, which is also called The Eight Diagrams Lock or Lu Ban Lock. It is the manifestation of the Chinese people's great wisdom. Opening it seems like solving a puzzle, which emphasizes the interaction between the user and the furniture, also enhancing the fun of using furniture. Combined with the modular design of modern design, the whole design's style looks simple and modern.
The Pudica Chair is an artefact that seeks syncretism between the rationalist style of the early twentieth century and the Brazilian colonial experience, embodied in the severity and economy of its forms and in the rise of a possible transcendence. Containment of an excess that poses as a brand, the piece takes up “Brazilian” inheritances in the form of a contemporary displacement. Apart from motivation, due to its characteristic design, Pudica Chair can be stacked.
UNU is a modular shelf and wardrobe system. Two lengths, three heights and two depths, further the shelves can be mounted upside down extending the height options three times. Shelves can be mixed and matched to sculpture a wall of shelves, not only up-down and sideways direction but also in-out from the wall, and the wardrobe items can also be integrated. The wall bracket allows cabling from lamps, stereo, tv and more to be hidden behind the shelves. Several add-on items are available such as book supports, hangers, mirrors, trays, tables and more.
The whole idea was taken from the album's cover "Dark side of the moon" of the band Pink Floyd. Using stainless steel and acrylic, the Darkside is a stool or side table that makes a good impression in your living room or even in your bedroom. Every aspect of the design was a part of the album cover. The triangle base is the prism. The colors of the prism are the enforcement that connects the two triangles bases. The transparency of the prism is the seat.
In this project, what I mainly focus on is the visual tension. What I want to do is think outside the box of a sofa, and made a strong visual impact by combining two very contrast things, the shape of traditional sofa and the pompous figure of anemone.Under the sea, the anemone is the protector of the fish, but when we enlarged the scale it let people felt afraid and have the meaning of defense. The characteristic of the PU tube made a contrast between the feeling you sitting on it and the visual impression. The couch coat the user gently and softly just like the anemone protect the fish.
Canela was designed to be a comfortable yet striking and elegant piece of furniture. The traditional joinery ensures that it's rigidity is derived from the structural design and not the thickness of the components, allowing these to be kept 'light' and delicate. The introduction of copper against the dark wood helps to set it apart visually, particularly from behind.
