Contemporary Chinese Furniture by Shao Fan

Shao Fan is a painter, sculptor and designer in Beijing famous for innovative “reconstructive” furniture. His work deconstructs boundaries between fine art and applied design, marrying classical Ming wood carving techniques with contemporary design and materials to achieve a harmony symbolic of Chinese cultural evolution. The chairs are also modeled after Chinese ideograms, and will likely reveal more social commentary when examined closely.
