Description

Min Chen (Chinese, b. 1980) strives to articulate the Chinese language of design. Chen’s fascination with traditional Chinese art arose from an early training in calligraphy and painting. Since studying at Milan’s Domus Academy, his eponymous practice has sought to forge a bond between East and West, while addressing the ax between tradition and modernity.

  • Ceramic and bamboo chestnut roaster in chocolate brown.
  • Chen has always considered design as a language rooted to a singular starting point and crafted by both history and culture. Inspired by the slow pace and tranquil atmosphere of his home city of Hangzhou, he channels this more relaxed rhythm into the creation of a concave bamboo stool. Blurring the line between old and new, the sum of these stratified bamboo veneers alludes to the countless layers of influences that shape contemporary design.
