Rail stool draws inspiration from the Chinese traditional armchair made during the Ming Dynasty. The form of the chair is usually composed of a curved top and a squared bottom, which symbolizes “天圆地方”, a Chinese philosophy that seeks the balance between movement and stillness. The stool intends to break the symmetry while maintaining a balanced form. Among the all-black silhouette, a pop of brass accentuates the beauty of its asymmetric character. The soft contour of the seat resonates with the curvature of the steel tubing to form a harmonious whole.
