A chair designed and made in Copenhagen
The first chair that I designed and made during the furniture study in Denmark. It is a combination of classic and modern design, using simple straight lines and curves. The chair has a very unique and comfortable armrest that fits perfectly with the arm angle. This furniture reflects my understanding of both Danish and Chinese designs and is a cultural integration that aims to overcome the cultural barrier in the context of furniture design.

Further simplify the design
As the sketching phase transitioned into the modeling phase, I created 1:5 scale models out of foam and a 1:1 model out of cardboard to further polish the design.
