‘empty bamboo stationery’ by yu jian

 

 

 

since ancient times, people have enjoyed bamboo as a material not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for its outstanding function.
a strong and rich wood which can be grown quickly, today, bamboo is being employed for all types of building and product applications.
in observing this, designer yu jian has developed a set of ten stationary objects called ‘empty bamboo’. each item takes a hollowed bamboo
stem–of varying diameters–as its body. the natural material is combined with metal parts which speak to the function of each piece,
resulting in a family of aesthetically beautiful and functional devices, from a pencil case to a tape dispenser, USB hub to a desk clock.
