Rt Stool or Sidetable by Li Xiaokai

Home > Winners > #95173


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Rt

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Stool or Sidetable

INSPIRATION:
The product design is inspired by Chinese tangram and is composed of 3 different right-angled parts mutually supporting each other. Product parts are simple, easy to process, convenient for installation and bulk transportation. The overall appearance of the product is simple and its structure is strong. Because of its inspirational origin, i.e. tangram, Rt may appear both flat and three-dimensional in form, all depending on the angle of the viewer.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The product is composed of 3 right-angle parts, including 2 L-shaped, right-angle aluminum plates of identical size, and 1 wooden right-angle block. Seen from different angles, Rt will give viewers different optical illusions. The linear surface produced by the combination of two different materials, the aluminum plates and wooden block, endeavours to impart a minimalist and eternal sculptural feeling.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Rt may be used as a stool as well as a side table. All of its components, 3 in total, are screwed together. Its simple structure allows users to assemble and disassemble it by themselves.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Rt concept design is totally new and was completed in October 2019 in Hangzhou, China. Its first prototype was completed in Hangzhou, in November 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The product consists of two parts: an ash stool and a 6mm aluminum plate support obtained through laser cutting and machine bending.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
300 (L) x 300(D) x 500 (H)

TAGS:
stool, combination, aluminium plate, sculpture, contemporary design, Minimalist

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Proceeding from daily observation and thinking, through the industrial processing of metal and natural materials, we research and manufacture art furniture that may embody and express with interesting logic the essence of life.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge of this product lies in the bending technology it involves, and the material resistance of its aluminum plates. We have studied the carrying capacity of the plates after bending through numerous repeated experiments, and fixed the parts firmly with custom screws.
