Resourcefulness is a virtuous trait in a designer and the minds behind the Ching Chair posses it. This piece of furniture might strike you as a simple one; however, it's been very well thought out and engineered and beautifully conceived.
Earning a Best of the Best title for their work within the 2013 Red Dot Design Awards, Lin Ta-Chih and Hsieh Yi-Fan looked to bamboo and cement as two abundant ingredients for their project. The Taiwanese team began with a broad stalk of the strong woody grass and cut it into long strips of threes to form the primary structure of the stool. The Ching Chair is interwoven, then bent into shape, and then made sturdy with nails and injected concrete.
