It is expected that innovation and creativity will be on display in the stands of Salone Satellite each year. The concept and fabrication technique behind furniture by Zhang Zhoujie delivered this year on this expectation. Steel plate is laser cut in unique faceted panels and hand formed and welded to create stools, chairs and tables.
Zhang Zhoujie grew up in the countryside of China, studied at the China Academy of Art and has completed an MA Industrial design at Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London. He has his own studio in Shanghai where he explores eastern values, future technology and ways to combine various disciplines.
