consisting of 16 layers of thin bamboo veneer, chinese designer min chen has developed ‘the hangzhou stool’. measuring 0.9mm in thickness, the bamboo sections are bent into an arc shape and glued together at teach end,like the ripples on the water surface. the more weight the stool receives, the deeper the arc – providing more elasticity to the user.
