Previous Works
Tetris Modular Furniture Series
2019

Wood and metal

Dimensions variable

Tetris Modular Furniture Serie was inspired by a video game released in 1984. By adding the elements from the game to his design, TANG suggests a new method of placing and arranging furniture at home in a straightforward and fun way. He chooses wood and metal tubes as the materials because of their durability and strength. Tetris Modular Furniture Series is flexible enough to fit in various situations and environment. 

 

Cylindrical Vessel with a Handle
2019

Plaster

90 × 90 × 120 cm

In Cylindrical Vessel with a Handle, TANG questions how people define an object by deducing his impression of a bucket with plaster. ‘Do we define them by their shapes or do we define them by their functions or materials?’ Some everyday objects play important roles in people’s daily life, but they are often neglected easily. Based on this thought, TANG tries to exaggerate the size and colour, and use unusual materials to create a vessel-shaped sculpture.
