They say that if you spend 10,000 hours practicing something, you can perfect it. That’s all that comes to mind when I look at Taiwanese Designer Cheng-Tsung Feng’s work with bamboo. In its modern design style lies age old practices. The kind that absolutely glorify Bamboo as not just a material, but also a source of inspiration.
Cheng-Tsung Feng learnt to work with bamboo traditionally, in the old craftsmanship style. This, along with his young age and relatively fresh outlook on life resulted in a a stunning merge between traditional material treatment and modern aesthetic and application.
If you’re as gobsmacked as I am, and you happen to be in Paris, drop by the exhibition in Maison and Objet to check out Cheng-Tsung’s work. I guarantee you’ll never look at bamboo the same way again!
