Inspiration
Free like a Bird With the ability to roam the earth and soar up into the sky, birds are natural symbols of freedom. Capturing this free spirit of the birds as well as the duality of their solitary and social nature, Plover is a collection of chairs co-created by architect Eric Tong and a group of THEi product design students, either used individually or collectively for brainstorming, seminars and co-creation. The Plover chairs may appear delicate, but they got everything one needs.
