When I was five, I was given a collection of wooden fans that unfolded to reveal hand-painted panels of flowers, mountain scenes, and peacefully swimming fish. The muted gentleness of the image and medium captivated me as a child, and I immediately draw the association upon seeing Morph Edition, designed by Friederike Klesper.

The coy smiles and playful gazes complement the wooden chair’s light construction and construct a new hybrid of vintage and modern. Available at Zeitraum
