Tebordstol

​Personal Project | 1 Months | 2019

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.

Form Development

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.
