Magnetic joint by Yuchun Cheng

The purpose of this project is for users to meet their needs in the process from buying the furniture to its delivery, packaging, assembly, use, storage and moving. The core of the concept is firstly to create a new kind of joint and secondly by doing so to create an alternative and convenient furniture system.

Aromatea by Szu - Yu Wan

Aromatea uses homemade natural scents to enhance the domestic drinking experience by creating a more elaborate aromatic experience before and whilst the sharing of tea with family or friends.

The process of creating the aromatic atmosphere is simple. First, the user collects natural materials they would like to include in the experience, making their own natural scents by following the instruction in the aroma kit. Then they simply add the extracts onto the special lid that is heated by the tea and released into the air, enjoy.

Bouquet by Shannon Clegg

By investigating various traditional pressing and mold making techniques, Bouquet was born. The unique hand molding process developed, enabling flowers to be pressed into a variety of 3D forms, Wild or cut flowers that were harvested or gathered from local gardens, florists or road side verges.

This series of pressings looks to biophillic design, which reflects the human desire to connect with nature. Bouquet's connection to season and place through the visual experience of gifting flowers helps satisfy this desire by bringing natural wildness into your home or work space.

The result is something that not only reminds of a location, person or event, but also something that lasts much longer than traditional cut flowers. Bouquet is available on a commission basis.

Rubbish Chairs Foam Chair, Tyre Chair & Spring Chair by Samuel Lloyd Morris

The project is about making beautiful, original and useful objects from the most unlikely origins, applying different ways of thinking to unexpected materials, making new discoveries and turning them into reality.

The chairs are objects of intrigue as things away from their original context and purpose. Made of found materials, the work comes from transforming original sculptural collages into high status manufacturable objects for use.

Tao Rocking by Hsu-Hung Huang

The intentions of this project were to communicate about and protect the unique and endangered indigenous cultures of Taiwan through contemporary design.

The result is a rocking chair that utilises and expresses the local Tao boat building traditions and techniques in a piece of contemporary furniture. This is a tradition that only remains with sixteen local craftsmen, a tradition that I hope can be saved.
