Entry Description

The roundtable emerged bearing the characters of freedom and equality. Nevertheless, with its developing in the broad usage of daily lives, some hidden rules have come to it, for instance, the orientations imply different status.
Seesaw Roundtable wants to “play” with the hidden rules and "push" the conventional furniture definitions. Then some fixed elements start to shake and collapse, like a chair does not always have legs and it might not be stable depending on the control of the seaters, which also aims to explore the relationships between humanity, objects and society.

Bio

Isabelle Zhao Peng is an interior designer with a strong sense of her cultural heritage. This has fueled her interests in the field of modern Chinese culture and inspired her to engage in a quest for how global best practices can be unified with long-existing traditions. Her work has always engendered a unique combination of local insight and style within a global context.
She premises: What is design today and how could this guide people’s lives towards poetic living? She takes this as her long-term research program to explore the possibilities of poetic living in the contemporary society.
