Li

This lounge chair with a relaxing and easygoing design is a longer-depth version of the dining chair Long. The Ming Dynasty style has a strong and unique characteristic of China, and is difficult to translate into modern designs. Round bars were carved from a solid wood board, and the six parts were connected to form the arm, instead of bending a piece of wood. It creates a soft line from the arm to the backrest.

A considerably long time was required to connect the segmented parts and form the curve with a natural outline. A bent solid wood piece was used for the back board. The legs of this Ming Dynasty style chair are connected to the arms, backrest, and back posts, forming a large arch. The chair creates a Chinese atmosphere with a modern sense of tension and softness in a space. This chair represents the respect of Japanese people for Chinese people and culture.
