Grille is an important, traditional symbol of Taiwanese life and has been an integral part of the Taiwanese landscape for decades. In Tainan, one can still find and see many of these traditional grilles, but sadly, this type of custom-made grille is rapidly disappearing in favor of cheap mass-produced grills. As a result, the craftsmanship of creating these grills is disappearing.
The Designer has combined this usually outdoor element, the grille, with another distinctly Taiwanese piece, the Bando stool (used for outdoor banquets). By merging these two different elements, the designer has crafted a piece that has a simple, clean and beautiful aesthetic that fits well in indoor environments.
