During my last two year of undergraduate study, I visited a great amount of museums in China to see the traditional art works and furnitures. After seeing thousands of the ancient pieces and taking photos of them, I found out that the strongest impression that left in my mind was the hidden 'W' or 'M' shape that appeals to be in almost every Chinese traditional object. It came to me that these type of 'W' or 'M' shape design may be the common Chinese traditional aesthetic principle which was used by ancient Chinese craftsmen consciously or unconsciously. Therefore, I started to wonder what else can be done with this aesthetic principle in design.
For the 'W' and 'M' shape aesthetic principle was very simple in its form, I started to mix it with minimalistic elements. The result of this project shows that the principle not only works well on traditional Chinese art work, but also on modern designs.
