The MOTI chair integrates aesthetics and structure, breaking the traditional structure, and using circles to connect the support points, which effectively balances the forces and reducing the material loss. The use of Mortise and tenon joints and full hidden dovetail joint make the joint more stable. The design is inspired by the arches, moon gate in ancient chinese gardens, the circular holes designation brings broader visual sense, which also implies that there is no barrier between communication. Sitting in the chair, you can free your thoughts and keep your mind flow unobstructed. Besides, this design also syndicates fulfilled and perfect.The idea of the moon inspiration is because of the traditional Chinese festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival.We like to sit on chair and chat with friends and enjoy the moonlight. The carbon-fiber composite material which designed in the traditional mortise and tenon structure, compounded with the modern high-strength material which made with the wood steam bending procedure, improves practicality and comfort. The chair deliberately adopts a two-color treatment design and separates the circles independently. This special shape will attract people's attention. The distance of the invisible pedals is based on a precise measurement after the person sits on the chair, and this distance just guides people to put their feet on the pedals. MOTI chair increases the strength of the chair while reducing the weight and size; take into account the sitting comfort while innovatively adopting a circular skeleton. Which breaks the traditional thoughts on seat structure and the public's understanding of the chair.
