What does "Home" mean to you?
Is your residence your "Home"?
Does your furniture reflect yourself?
Can you find a balance between symbiosis and solitude?
As the environment changes, more and more people are moving to the city, resulting in land shortage and insufficient living space. People who are constantly moving from place to place are trying to find the ideal residence. With the change and development of living space, an increasing number of living styles are gradually taking shape, from living alone in a single room to co-living in a shared space.
According to different types of spaces, the characteristics of objects will be adjusted according to people's needs. In an environment with frequent movement and blurred boundaries with others, the divide between what is public and private, the control of space, and sense of belonging are all subject to greater challenges.
"When thinking about ideals of home at the core are comfort, security, a sense of autonomy and ownership, and the capacity for privacy. But again, each of those can be challenged, they can be nonexistent even in the context of home. Home at its core goes back to a sense of belonging; a sense of belonging and belonging collectively. "

The works are developed through the relationship between people and objects in the field. Combined with portable functions, our works can better fit in the circumstances of fluid living.
This series of works explore how to add the feeling of "home" with objects in the field. Thinking about the boundary, control, comfort, and belonging between public and private in the space, I use leather as the main material since its color and traces becomes more individual through each user's lifestyle.
The collection includes a side table, a lamp, and a divider screen, and matches with different materials to show the various faces of leather furniture.
