Empress Wu e Ming Ya

Empress wu
The inspiration of the project has born by observing the production of Ming furniture and the formal language used for those objects. We have identified the profile of the back of the chairs as a very special line and very closely linked to the Ming tradition. This line has become a wooden profile that embraces a bright sphere that resumes the centuries-old Chinese devotion to the moon as an abstract idea and a natural element of man's life.

Ming Ya
The inspiration of the project has born by observing the production of Ming furniture and the formal language used for those objects. We have identified the profile of a classic Ming dynasty vase and took it as a special silhouette. Our intent was to let the light coming out from this shape and enlighten the surrounding ambient, as we could bring again the light over this centuries old Chinese tradition.
