RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Oriental Treasures is a series of elegant luxury furniture pieces, fusing oriental design and functions with fine Italian craftsmanship. Designed by Chen Xuan, a leading Chinese interior designer and architect, the collection spans four objects: Royal Medicinal Cabinet, Emperor's Clothes Rack, Auspicious Dresser, Mountain Altar. No matter as standalone object, or in combination, Oriental Treasures will add a touch of Eastern wisdom and beauty to their surroundings.

CHALLENGE:
Similarities between architectural design and furniture design lies more likely in structural mechanics, thus in the creation of Oriental Treasures we communicated repeatedly about structural mechanics with the manufacturers, which in the end helped us make big breakthrough in the aspect of structural mechanics. Thanks for the supporting of the manufacturers, we have solved many problems of mechanics conduction. In fact, when designing the furniture piece, I did not adopt techniques used in architectural design, but take into consideration the architectural culture, society background and historical background.
