Taiwanese brand Yii champions craft and the “Eco Arts.” Working closely with the Taiwan Craft Research Institute, the products available through Yii combine cultural relevancy, design integrity, and traditional manufacture. The result is a solid range of pieces that meld a variety of aesthetic sensibilities through great reverence for material.
For example, there are the stools designed by Chen-hsu Liu, which explore the potential of using bamboo in mass production. Traditional bamboo bending techniques are employed at factory level in both bar stool and and a shorter tripod stool. Both have superb lines and fit the overall tone of the Yii brand beautifully. The series is called Bentboo.
