Fugu Bag | Sumo Chair
The product is intended for people who work and live in the urban environment. People carry more and more electronic products everyday, such as laptops, i-pads, cameras, i-phones, etc, and those things are very valuable, but most carrying bags cannot provide enough protection for those products in case of impact.
Sumo Chair is a low back arm chair for comfortable dining posture. Sumo is made of wood and is very easy to assemble. The construction is inspired by traditional Chinese joints and mortise technique which can be quickly assembled by hand without using any glue and hardware. The aesthetic of sumo resembles a squatting wrestler which gives the chair an extra meaning of endurance.

I founded Benwu Studio with my partner Hongchao Wang who graduated from ECAL, Lausanne ,Switzerland. I am based in both London and New York City, with expertise and experience in furniture, product and spatial design. Our characteristic designs have left traces in homes, galleries and museums. We believe good conceptual thinking can be applied to anything, and new experiences can stimulate creativity. We immerse ourselves in all kinds of subjects. Inspired and refreshed our resulting dreams are made into reality through beautiful craftsmanship.
