Bamboo furniture is typically shaped from a very craft perspective where the beauty comes from the skill. We perceive a particular kind of beauty from bamboo in its original from - the bamboo forests, a combination between elegant shapes and gentle movements. We love its somehow random yet pure beauty, almost as if you can hear the wind whispering among them. Thus we decided to use bamboo material with minimum touch, retaining the aesthetic of the raw material itself.

Benefit from its original tube shape, we reinforce the bamboo pole’s physical property by creating a cost-effective process using stainless steel structure and special resin, we also benefit from this process to create a very minimal yet super strong joint with glass. This process not only creates more possibilities for the industrial process, but also prevent bamboo poles from cracking due to different humidity ‒ the main reason why none of the contemporary furniture uses the original bamboo poles.


Ripple - the moving light

The Ripple Project studies the beauty of glass. When a beam of light is projected through the gently rotating mouth-blown glass dome, shadow and light form a breathtaking, ever-changing pattern, where the aesthetic goes beyond the material itself.

The process of making this project includes both tradition glass craft skills and modern production engineering of the moving parts. The designers realised that the beauty of glass lies in the uneven surface resulted from the traditional mouth-blowing process. While the craft skill freezes the beauty of glass in time, the elegant and precise rotation brings the flow of material back to life, as if the dome exists with an uncertainty.
