jungmo yang has translated the image of a bird sitting on a fence or a chair into a seating piece, in which the silhouette of the feathered animal becomes the armrest of his design; the smooth curves of the bird providing comfort for the sitter as they relax within its wings. all other elements of the furniture piece are simplified, maintaining a visual and physical balance. the ‘bird armchair’ is made from ash and painted in matte dark gray and navy.
