Striving to articulate the Chinese language of design, Chen’s fascination with traditional Chinese art arose from an early training in calligraphy and painting. After studying at Milan’s Domus Academy, his eponymous practice has sought to forge a bond between East and West, while addressing the flux between tradition and modernity.
Chen has always considered design as a language rooted to a singular starting point and crafted by both history and culture. Inspired by the slow pace and tranquil atmosphere of his home city of Hangzhou, he channels this more relaxed
rhythm into the creation of a concave
bamboo stool. Blurring the line
between old and new, the sum
of these stratified bamboo
veneers produces a
compact piece of
furniture, alluding
to the countless layers
of influences that shape
contemporary design.
