design studio tao & jin integrates architectural aluminum sheets into furniture design. their new collection, ‘wave shelves’ and ‘no.7 chair‘, will be revealed at this year’s greenhouse of stockholm furniture fair. the collection uses corrugated aluminum sheets and flat aluminum tubes as basic materials, creating an excellent balance between structure, aesthetic and production technology.
the no.7 chair is constructed from four bent aluminum tubes of identical thickness, showing a combination of simple material and organic form, while the production, assembly and packing process are simplified. it was among the designers’ attempts to combine production method with structural logic.

the same tube structure is also used in the wave shelves, creating a fluidity among the collection. the shelf board is thin aluminum plates given a well-calculated wave structure, which provides strong support while being extremely light-weighted. the legs’ subtle curve softens the conventional structure of a shelf, combined with the elegant wave curve, a vivid appearance is then created.
