Description/

When it comes to otherworldly appearances in organic forms, one can expect to find them in the family of fungi. The surprising look of the Devil’s tooth mushroom makes it a perfect reference for Naihan Li’s “100% All-Natural” series. The bold, red dew shape, made with finely polished lacquer tufted into a sheepskin covered upholstery, with 3D sculptured base reinforced by carbon fiber and texture with lacquer, is a salute to the Chinese spirit of turning organic form into the household object with a bold, extravagant contemporary look.

Materials: Carbon Fiber, Chinese Lacquer, Sheep’s Fur.


NaiHan Li

designer

Jingjing Naihan Li is an architect-turned-furniture-designer whose works reflect what she calls “the moody impracticality of globe-trotting.” Li studied design and architecture at London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, and early on in her career collaborated on a design project with the renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Her best-known series, titled “The CRATES,” was inspired by the shipping crates used for transporting artwork and her own experience living in “Beijing’s shifting urban playground where industrial and artist spaces are quickly discovered and soon destroyed,” as she says. The works in “The CRATES” are modular items of everyday furniture—such as bookshelves, beds, and armchairs—that fold up into compact crates for easy transportation. The series was nominated for the 2012 Design of the Year Award by the Design Museum in London. Li has also produced design projects in collaboration with Swarovski and the Gwangju Biennial, among others.
