Artist Bio

       Yuxuan Huang is a furniture designer currently based in Brooklyn, New York. She blends mass-producible manufacturing methods with improvisational handcraft. Interested in deconstructed materials from found objects, her designs apply a reimagined method of play to simplistic forms, allowing functionality to harmoniously coexist with artistry, memory, and forgotten stories. Growing up in Chengdu, a mountainous nature-rich city in southwest China, she has turned to seeking subtlety and serendipity from the life and afterlife of objects.Yuxuan's work is well recognized  and has been showcased in Salone del Mobile Milano, ICFF/Wanted Design Manhattan and Alcova Miami.

Twig Chair, 2022

A Chair

Material: Baltic Birch Plywood

Dimension:27" x 17" x 19"

        Entirely composed of Baltic Birch Plywood, Twig chair intends to reveal the inconspicuous beauty inside this material and its mundanity. With CNC milling down laminated plywood, the contour lines of birch veneers gradually shape a pattern resembling the growth rings of trees. Inspired by waterfalls and human figure, Twig Chair’s minimalist sculptural form is a metaphor for humanity: through its form and materiality, Twig Chair wishes to draw a contemplative dialogue between humans, nature, and industrialization.

        Twig Chair could be produced by recycled and wasted commercial-used plywood to create a sustainable, economical, and aesthetic future product.
