Wooden chairs are usually elegant and neat; however, it is difficult to sit on them for too long. Therefore, a cushion is always placed on the chair. How if a wooden chair become soft but still keeps the aesthetic of wood? After several experiments, I found a way to achieve this. With the combination of 3D pressed flexible wood veneer and soft foam, the sitting surface provides subtle softness.

木製家具總有它的獨特的韻味,深受人們喜愛。然而,因木頭質地本身堅硬,木椅通常無法久坐。到頭來人們通常習慣加個軟墊於木椅上。再經過多次實驗後,我們利用3D壓製天然木皮的技術,製成表面柔軟的木椅。配合適當的塗料與膠水,來提高坐面的穩定性、柔軟度和耐久性。
