Made of entirely of bamboo, with a simple geometric form, the Bamboo Chair Jun Zi was designed by Jeff Dah-Yue Shi for Dragon Fly Gallery. The chair design was consisted of rounded box-shaped frames made of bamboo slats. While the front view of the modern chair looked like a bamboo tunnel at the base, the side vieW was alike to the chinese character which denotes ‘a noble man’. In chinese literature and philosophy, bamboo became a symbol of a noble man. When one sat on the chair, the chair furniture had a slight bounce which reflected the natural flexibility of the bamboo slats. The maximum load-bearing capacity for the chair reached 200 kg.
