bamboo chair jun zi
58 x 43 x 87 cm / 5.2 kg
the bamboo chair jun zi by jeff dah-yue shi for dragon fly gallery – yisheyi project is made of moso bamboo inclusive of component parts, with a simple geometric form. the structure is composed of rounded box-shaped frames made of bamboo slats. while the front view of the chair appears like a bamboo tunnel at the base, the side view is similar to the chinese character which denotes ‘a noble man’ – in chinese literature and philosophy, bamboo has been a symbol of a noble man. the gaps between the bamboo frames provide the ventilation. each of the arches contribute to its neat contour. when one sits on the chair, there is a slight bounce which reflects the natural flexibility of the bamboo slats. the maximum load-bearing capacity for the chair is 200 kg.
