2017 - 2018, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Cocoon Chair was inspired by the creation of cocoon. The element of line and frame have been used for bio-mimicry cocoon building technique. The woven line presents the texture of cocoon and the rocking motion is an experience of the floating nature of the cocoon. The outcome express the sense of comfort and relaxation.
Cocoon Chair uses continuous line randomly looped around a frame structure to create a woven form that serves as a lounge chair. The result goes through long development process and understanding of the relationship between frame and line, material, shape incorporate with human's body, motion, and comfort. And minimal structure was considered based on the lightless feeling of the cocoon. The outcome is a minimal structure that represents a natural comfort form and it serves as a functional piece of furniture which called Cocoon.
