China Project 9: Piao Chair

hardythomas000's Blog

Designer: Pinwu, Hangzou China

Project: Utilising 3000 year old method of gluing sheets of paper together used in the making of traditional umbrellas, the chair looks too delicate for everyday use but the designer insists its more than durable enough and maintains flexibility for comfort.

Why I like it: Helping to preserve a traditional craft. Handmade locally.
