The Tenon & Mortise Chair
Designer & Carpenter
This chair design is a modern interpretation of traditional Chinese wood joinery - mortise and tenon joint, which reveals the hidden beauty of the wood locks. The whole chair is constructed by 3 parts, which are assembled by 48 laser-cut plywood pieces. The transformation from 2D to 3D provides more opportunity in functions, delivery and energy saving.
The angle of the back is calculated carefully to make it comfortable. When people sit on it and lean on their back, the chair will be locked tighter. This concept connects the traditional craftmanship tomodern design language and technology.
