Designed by Taiwan-based designer Shi-Chieh Lu with the aim of encouraging the cultural exchange between the East and West, and between the ideas that underly design in Taiwan and the Poltrona Frau brand.
Inspired by and referring to the historic Ming-type Chair, Ming's Heart combines the pure, fluid lines that express Chinese and Oriental spirituality, with the geometric and cubic formality of the Western vision.
Ming's Heart is made from a thin steel sheet shell and steel tubular legs. The result is a refined and elegant chair that appears to hover or float in the air, almost like a swing or a conceptual sculpture.
