bamboo chair jun zi by jeff da-yu shi 58 x 43 x 87 cm / 5.2 kg




the bamboo chair ‘jun zi’ by jeff dayu 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.

  • It’s a piece of artwork. I would like to have it.

  • @ kendenny

    Why ?

    did Frank Gehry make this with his bear hands ?

  • i don’t know where i’d put one of those, but it’s still a very nice design. I like the basket-like appearance (though it’s not braided)

  • absolutely beautiful! beautiful use of material, great proportions – perfect.

  • sorry, don’t like this chair.
    A lot of bamboo for nothing special or nice.

  • looks like [url=]grcic[/url] is chinese

  • Why are so many design fans such absolute A-Holes when it comes to giving kudos. Is it that hard to say its a nice chair? Some behave like they need to take every other designer down a peg. Too many know-it-alls and haters out there.

  • without Frank Gehry, this would not exist.
