Wei Hong

This is a monograph on the future of Chinese furniture design. The author, Mr. Hong Wei, has been studying Chinese traditional furniture for many years. His furniture design respects the traditions, looks to the future, and abandons unnecessary forms of traditional furniture. In addition, his design pursues extreme restraint, seems formless, focuses on the link between the traditional hand-made wisdom and the contemporary life aesthetics, and explores the dwelling philosophy of Chinese furniture
