Product news: South Korean designer Jungmo Yang has created these simple wooden chairs with bird-shaped armrests.
Jungmo Yang designed the armrests as anthropomorphic shapes, but kept efficient simplicity as a principle throughout the rest of the design.
The supports flow upwards to connect with the backrest, which has been formed from a single piece of smoothed ash wood.
"The smooth curves of the Bird provide comfort to people when they use the armrest," says the designer. "Bird is designed for physically and visually comfortable positions with the shape of the backrest and seat."
The wooden bird chair is available to buy directly from Jungmo Yang's website and come finished in either mat dark grey, or a nay blue colour.
We've a number of wooden chairs recently, including a Panton chair cut out of a tree trunk using a chainsaw, and curved wooden chairs with cut-out backs by London designer Simon Pengelly for Modus.
