The main timber truss for the retail shop at the front room introduces the idea of “Structure as furniture”, a free-standing individual component that is detached with the existing wall. The idea of moderate intervention with minimal attaches and less anchoring that will undermine the existing building is taking place in this project.

An “arch brace” is a curved piece of wood that acts as a secondary fixing to strengthen the structure. A series of arch braces in their purest application have been used to create the chair’s minimal form negating the need for a cross structure making it lighter, leaner and allowing the curved seat pan to appear to float in the middle of the frame.
Instead of using the frame as a base for a fabric lampshade, they integrated the light source in the frame. This solution resulted in a very minimal structure, space consuming and spacious at the same time, through which natural light can pass freely during daytime and creating a floating object that casts elaborate shadows when the light is turned on.
