BACKGROUND

The tabletop objects are quite classical products. Even the recent trend is occupied by minimalism, I still think we need to start to bring some old and opposite elements into it. How to balance the old and new, classical and modern is important. I decided to keep bringing some old elements into these modern form trends and created a new series of 2020 tabletop serving objects.

“How about combine cane weave and tabletop serving?” 

DESIGN PROCESS

Nowadays, cane weave element are a new design trend on a lot of different products. Bringing this old technique combines with modern form, it can create the conflict between old and new and form into a unique style. How to use this material and combine it with modern design table top serving products is a new challenge?

INSPIRATION 

Inspired by cane weave furniture, I decided to use the dark color frame to contain cane weave in order to highlight the dichotomy of the old and new, modern and classical.
