DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mountains

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Writing Desk

INSPIRATION:
The design inspiration comes from the recessed-leg table with everted flanges in traditional Chinese furniture. It is convenient to place items and prevent items from falling during office or writing and painting, which is practical and beautiful. Cushions are added to the seat to make it more comfortable to use. The mountain element in traditional landscape painting is adopted in the design of the back plate of the seat, giving users a peaceful and elegant spiritual feeling.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In the design of this writing desk, it integrates the traditional book case shape, and the mild elm creates a unique hollow feeling. It has both classical charm and modern simplicity and modesty. Applying Chinese elements to minimalism is a bold attempt. The book case design is exquisite and natural, which not only has charm, but also meets the functional needs of furniture.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
When a person sits on the seat to work, the front end of the desk has a small slope, which conforms to ergonomics during work and will not feel pressed. Because the two ends of the desk are "warped". When working or writing and painting, it will reduce the chance of items falling, which is practical and beautiful. A compartment is designed under the bookcase, which not only adds practicality but also increases the beauty of the product.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The theme of Chinese painting is applied to the design of this set of furniture, and the image of "warped" in traditional Chinese furniture and the element of "Shan Xing" in landscape painting are applied to the whole set of books, desks and chairs. The ergonomic design of calligraphy plans is optimized so that users can have a positive user experience when using them. The whole set of furniture is designed with elm wood, which is the second innovation of new Chinese-style furniture.

CHALLENGE:
