COLIN SEAH (MINISTRY OF DESIGN)
Ministry of Design was created by Colin Seah, to question convention and redefine experiences. Headquartered in Singapore with Beijing & KL offices, MOD was declared "Designer-of-the-Year" by the International Design Awards, USA 2010, and designed New Majestic Hotel (President’s Design Award 2006), and Macalister Mansion Hotel (Best Luxury Hotel at Gold Key NYC 2013).
Ming 647 Chair
This steel wire seat is inspired by the silhouette and gravitas that the traditional timber Ming bow back chair commanded and a desire to invert it into something opposite – light, airy, and colour infused. It is an answer to its designer’s question "how can a ubiquitous traditional piece of furniture be challenged and updated?"
