Shao Fan is a Chinese artist who merges modern furniture with vintage pieces. Fan's work is eye-catching and intriguing as it gives a window into both the past and present of furniture design.

Fan's pieces involve two or more pieces of furniture, each from a different time period. One is merged with the other forming a hybrid piece that never truly loses the look of its original components. The pieces are eye-catching and are a great way to visually represent how far furniture design has come over the years. Modern design is sometimes met with disdain by those who see it as pretentious and overly modern. Shao Fan's work is great because it bridges the gap between generations of designers and shows that both old and new furniture can coexist without clashing.
