Inspired by a waterfall, this award-winning Taiwanese bamboo chair makes wood look as fluid as water

With a name that perfectly describes the chair’s visual style, the Lattice Chair is an interesting single-arm chair made from interwoven strips of wood. Designed for comfort as well as for that interesting aesthetic, the chair comes with a single armrest, allowing you to sit with complete postural flexibility. Its cushion is made from high-quality Taiwanese bamboo strips, known for their excellent toughness. The result is a chair that weighs a mere 4 kilos, but can take up to 120 kilos of weight.

The Lattice Chair’s design is inspired by a waterfall, something that becomes very evident with how its cascading design looks like multiple streams of downward-flowing water. Made from a Taiwan-specific Moso bamboo, the chair comes crafted using unique bending and forming methods that are specific to the bamboo and to Taiwan’s culture.

The Lattice Chair is a Platinum Winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2021, and also secured a winning position at the SIT Furniture Design Award for the year 2021.

A close-up of the woven strips of wood shows how remarkably perfect the thick bamboo wood strips are. The weft and warp use a combination of Taiwanese Moso Bamboo and Beechwood to create a criss-cross contrast of different-colored woods that are finally finished with a coat of natural wood wax oil.
