    rice paper, silk cotton and leather

    “Tié” chair describes a further step of how to turn a weightless material like paper into a stable and organic solid form. The process is inspired by the Yuhang Paper Umbrella handcraft. The whole shell is made from irregular shaped rice paper sheets. The shape of the chair is inspired by the classical Chinese horseshoe-back armchair, mark and logo on the back.
