The intention of this project is to create a series of new types of furniture by researching the relation between space and object.

Humans have formulated and created different units and tools to measure spaces and objects. These include inches and meters; ruler and tape measurement …etc. Since that, designers count on these units and tools to measure space and imagine how our design can fit into reality. Therefore, I believe that units become a universal acknowledgement of how we define three dimensional spaces and objects. The metal structure quantify the space, which represents the concept of units and measurement. The plywood is bend and assembled with metal structure. This represents the visualization and materialization of the process of how we imagine an object to be created in reality.
