The Scroll Chair by XU Gongwei

The meaning of design does not refer only to fancy dresses and unusual architecture or I don’t know what other impressive art form. It’s about bringing an unexpected change in the appearance of a particular thing that will make it special and interesting and will draw your attention. So we can seriously talk about furniture design, as people designing furniture must be really creative if they want to produce original products. Well, XU Gongwei is certainly one of these talented imaginative people.He designed the Scroll chair that you can admire in these pictures.

The Chinese designer was inspired by the ancient support for letters – the paper scroll. So he designed this chair to look like a scroll that rolls either on the inside or on the outside. The chair is made of stainless steel or carbon fiber and the scroll is made of extruded PVC. Of course it is available in a variation of colors you can choose from and you can use them both indoors and outdoors. No wonder it got the big design award for 2010in China.
