Chessboard is a contemporary chair design that is inspired by the ‘official’s hat’ chairs in Chinese heritage and culture.
This iron-made chair is inspired by the ‘official’s hat’ chairs that originated from China’s Ming and Qing dynasties. While preserving the values of the ‘official’s hat’ chairs, bold and innovative solutions have also been sought to change the structure of the chair. The legs, base, seat surface and back of the object are combined perfectly as one whole.
Additionally, a soft mat cushion is an upgrade of the seating surface of the original ‘official’s hat’ chairs, making it more comfortable. Clever, thin and consistent, this chair expresses the design skills. On a whole, the design is meant to convey a zen approach and philosophy.
