As many designs for wooden furnishings seem to have been moving in the direction of minimalism, objects like the Scorpion Chair remind people of the aesthetic wonders and intrigue in pieces with manually integrated detail. Sunnmoo Pan was inspired by the old Chinese mortise and tenon joint structure, creating a small seat that's made possible without the use of nails.
When you observe it from above, you can appreciate the gridded composition that comprises 19 tall blocks, arranged vertically and set together with tiny triangular connectors. The combination produces diamond-shaped holes between the components. The Scorpion Chair is complete with three extended blocks around the outside that serve as stool legs. One continues to protrude upwards to become a tiny backrest.
