The detail of 'Plastic Classic_Lacquered' chair by Pili Wu for Han Gallery
‘In Asia, the classical Ming-style chair is recognised as a symbol of social status and taste. Conversely, the widespread presence of the moulded plastic stool is overwhelmingly abundant because of its low price; making it another kind of “classic”’, explains the young Taiwanese designer Pili Wu whose striking, crimson red ‘Plastic Classic_Lacquered’ chair found itself the centre of attention at HAN Gallery‘s Ventura Lambrate exhibition. Featuring a characteristic-of-the-Ming-chair loop armrest and back, and a simple stool-like seat and legs, the beech wood chair was created in collaboration with artisan Tian-chang Jian who hand-lacquered the design with 20 layers of natural lacquer, thus creating a unique, ombré effect.

'1.3' Chair by Kihyun Kim for Zeitraum; photo by Team Schalterhalle
A young Korean designer and last year’s RCA graduate Kihyun Kim has just been awarded the prestigious Designs of the Year Award 2012 in the furniture category for his ’1.3′ Chair. The design, which is most probably world’s lightest wooden chair, was realised as Kim’s MA Design Product graduate project and the chair has now been put into production by a German manufacturer Zeitraum. Originally made of balsa wood and weighting a feathery (less than Gio Ponti’s 1957 ‘Superleggera’) 1.28 kg, the ’1.3′ Chair is now available in oak, ash and American walnut. It was presented earlier last week at Zeitraum’s stand in hall 7 and at the RCA Paradise show at Milan’s Ventura Lambrate. (more…)
