Bamboo Furniture: Yii Wave Chair
Bamboo is not only one of the most flexible and durable gifts from nature to mankind- it can be transformed into classy, stylish and practical objects of desire.
The flexibility, contours, texture and resistance of bamboo generates such character.

“Yii”- pronounced as the letter E – is derived from three Chinese characters. The first represents the central idea in Eastern philosophy: the rotation between the sun and the moon, yin and yang- the changing and unchanging laws of nature. The second one represents exquisite craft, and the last one stands for ideas and creativity.
The philosophy of Yii comes to life in this product- and in their own words:
In the first yii collection, the intuitive wisdom of ancient culture is morphed into the design and production of exceptional objects. Focus is placed on skillful craftsmanship and manufacturing processes that are deeply rooted in a harmonious relation between Man and Nature, to finally propose a way of life that is both intelligent and moral.
Lursh will keep a keen eye on this project and hopefully the designers will come up with more Low planet impact products. Watch this space.
