5 STUDIES FOR NATURE: GUANGDONG STUDY

We continued our collaboration with universities and travelled from Aalto university, Helsinki, Finland to GDUT Guangdong, China. There a group of 7 students, guided by professor Fang Hai, made careful research on Helsinki study - the modern, wooden lounge chair - and based on their cultural background developed different suggestions to be the next product in the series.

The doctorate student Fu Yang’s Rhombus-shaped lounge table series, with its flexible arrangement with Helsinki lounge chair, as well as its simple geometric form, stood out from the group.
