Redefinition Chair

 

The “Redefinition” series is simply the deconstruction of wood, and reconstruction through the form of free combination, creating unlimited possibilities by breaking the fixed or standard system. The design innovation of QIU studio is based on our mature solid wood panel technology, choosing different types and sizes of wood, understanding materials as elements, rearranging a rich mix in a structured way, and applying them to the latest furniture series.
