RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
My research concentrated on the method of embedding bridge structure forms into furniture design. a bare structure without any decorations could be directly used and taken as the appearance of a piece of work , like a bridge. Even though bridges have no or only very minimal decorations, people still think it is beautiful

CHALLENGE:
The main function of a bridge is to cross terrain like a valley or a river with the main supporting beams standing on the ground of two ends. It has to be a planar geometry so that transporting goods or people is possible. Essentially, the difference between a bridge and a piece of furniture is that furniture is movable with no fixed connection to the ground. From that, I put the whole structure of the bridge upside down, and made the ground become the tabletop,
