The Tai Kwun Chairs is an iconic yet flexible furniture system that responds to the unique design languages of the new and old architecture at Tai Kwun. The elegant curving form of each chair is ergonomically designed for comfort and is inspired by the floating boxes of the new architecture as well as the roofscape of the historical buildings.

The use of different coloured sustainable wood creates a gradient pattern that perfectly balances the need for an iconic design, while co-existing in harmony within its surroundings.

A bespoke locking system ensures that each chair can be easily installed and removed to ensure ultimate flexibility in seating arrangements to suit large scale performances, small group gatherings, and for passers-by looking for a moment of solitude.

Each chair is designed to be easily stackable to become an impromptu art work as well as to ensure that they can be stored in a space-saving and efficient manner.
