Chair to Share – From East to West, From Classic to Contemporary

Drawing on the passion that has motivated him through 45 years of career, The SILKROAD collection is Chan’s first furniture range. It epitomises the artistic collision between the East and West, classic and contemporary, craftsmanship and technology, functionality and humanity, Yin and Yang. His reinterpretation of the Victorian courting bench with contemporary Asian aesthetics does not only spell simplicity and harmony, but also inspires cross-cultural dialogue and connection evocative of the centuries-old Silk Road trade routes. In collaboration with furniture designer Danial Chow, who advances furniture design through innovation, engineering and taste, the refine and sleek-designed SILKROAD collection are all handmade with dark walnut wood and solidly engineered with precise joinery work, milling, sanding and impeccable finish. The collection includes two-seaters with three different backrest heights and a four-seated bench ideal for public space.

Where East & West, Tradition & Innovation, Craftsmanship & Technology Synergise.
