Po Shun Leong

For over forty years I have had an obsession about designing and making chairs . Architect seem to be especially infected, especially during free time. This 2014 set made of bent plywood is one of over fifty designs. Scroll down and you will see other examples, going back in time. I have always wanted to be a furniture designer specializing in purely simple and functional contemporary chairs. Simple is really hard to do. I develop prototypes in the studio to a point that they are ready for factory production. Almost all the chairs are made of bent plywood using specialized techniques to bend wood veneers to their limits.
