Suvar (Chair) by MingBin Yang
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The inspiration is a Chinese expression “one rafter, one tile”. It pays homage to the traditional way of Chinese etiquette, with one curve and one slanting line, summing up its aesthetic ideal with the minimum artistry, so that the chair acquires a literary style, and attains the height of modern Eastern life.
Creativity
The chair adopts the mortice and tenon structure, with 32 of them in total, and 12 different angles. Tenoning at different angles means to opening holes at different angles, which makes industrialised production impossible; tenoning, hole-opening, assembling, trimming, and polishing all have to be done by hands.

Production Technology
The chair adopts the mortice and tenon structure, with 32 of them in total, and 12 different angles. Tenoning at different angles means to opening holes at different angles, which makes industrialised production impossible; tenoning, hole-opening, assembling, trimming, and polishing all have to be done by hands. The hand-resting and the legs all involve revolving, the rationality and tightness of mortice and tenon account for the stability in addition to its elegance. The separation of seat and frame makes the diversification of seating material possible.
