As part of the London Design Festival, CONTEMPORIST visited the Tent London design event, where Taiwan-based Grass Studio were exhibiting their flexible bamboo stools.

Description from the designer

I want to promote green craft, to design products that are friendly to our environment. I want the users to be able to appreciate bamboo’s smooth quality and its excellent flexibility. I also thought about how to improve the time-consuming and labor-intensive process. As a result, I replaced part of the hand-made process with machine so that the product can be mass-produced without losing the spirit of craft. The structure demonstrates the elasticity of bamboo and provides maximum comfort. The entire chair is recyclable, due to the use of environmental-friendly laminate bamboo.
