The Hangzhou Stool - by Atelier Chen Min - consists of many layers of bamboo veneer. Each veneer is made of several ultra thin bamboo layers, aligned vertical to each other. Each veneer becomes not only very flexible but also robust. The layers give a very special “arc” of the stool, just like the ripples on the water surface. When sit, the more weight the stool receives, the deeper the arc will be bent, and therefore the more elasticity the user will feel. www.chen-min.com
