One Pillar is a stool. It was inspired during the trip in Hanoi, Vietnam in June 2018. The inspiration was the architectural shape of One Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi, Vietnam. The whole structure of One Pillar stool is developed from One Pillar Pagoda’s architectural style. One Pillar Pagoda is actually one of Vietnam’s two most iconic temples located in Hanoi. One Pillar is fused with architectural and historical elements inside the design. It can help re-bring out the architecture and construction aesthetics of One-Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi.
In this project, One Pillar Stool was adopted a design methodology “Architecture Furniturization”, which is called by Vincent himself. There is a close and abstract relationship between architecture and furniture. Architecture itself is all around the world. Humans can see it and feel it, having different thoughts towards architecture. “Architecturized Furniture” is somehow to represent another kind of spirituality of architecture, which maybe different from the real one.
