Bamboo Chair








By picking up an appropriate bamboo, removing the knots, drying and preserving it, by cutting, sawing, carving, heating, inserting, gluing, assembling and nailing, a piece of furniture is achieved in an artisanal way.

The most common technique ─ bamboo bending ─ was adopted as the main approach in this project. Two-meter long bamboo units were bent and assembled to form the structure, which became the symbolic outline of this chair and  reveal a sense of tactility of this uniqle material.

由國立臺灣工藝研究發展中心發起的「新層次」計畫作品,由臺灣竹藝師林建成老師製作,探索當代生活方式與傳統工藝技術的融合面貌。

應用竹子的彈性及韌性,此竹椅以積層材加熱彎曲為主要技法,由兩公尺長的竹材單元構成,陣列排開的曲竹同時作為椅背及扶手,並形成了標誌性輪廓。

竹材單元間的組合,以縱橫交疊形式構成優雅細節,而座面為加強結構強度,採取特殊的切削編織技法,使得一張竹椅以極具匠心的方式實現。
