Wong Chair by Milk Design
Wong Chair is a three-legged wooden armchair created by Milk Design collaborating with Elmo (HK). Milk Design was found in 1998 Hong Kong. Their work has been a continuous exploration of new ideas and solutions related to culture, social, and environment. The project intended to explore new elements and how they can be merged with the traditional way of solid wood furniture making as an appreciation towards our tradition and as a base for new development.
The chair is very strong and smooth that can be a daily seating. It is handcrafted with the inspiration of tradition and its well-developed joinery system, the new design adopted the general application and created a subtle variation on the joinery so that the chair carries a mix of classic Chinese beauty, balance, smooth, solid, and beauty of modernity, simple, and elegant.
Using a mix of white oak and walnut timber, the key new features include the seamlessly and beautifully built armrest and the special three-way joint that helps support the weight, allowing the chair to stand on only three legs instead of the standard four.
The chair is simple and classic just like a chair that we have been familiar for so long time. It could fit modern interior design which will also have the traditional East Asia impression.
