Brief

Concept

The tea garden, with it's curves and evocative history, was the initial inspiration for the Cenear. The goal was to combine the ideas of modern Chinese furniture with a nod to historical Chinese culture. This prompted the use of the ancient tea garden curvature in the design of the back support. This created a unique, modern bench that also evokes the past.
