Snow is comprised of air and ice. In crystal units, it has a fragile and fleeting existence, but when it gathers, it becomes surprisingly hard and strong. Such is its conflicting nature. Heap is a chair conceived from the metamorphosis and quality of snow. By randomly stacking modules consisting of three lines, a light and organic structure is created. Since there are infinite ways to stack modules, chairs of various shapes and sizes can be made with one module as the origin unit, holding a high degree of freedom in shape and infinite possibilities of development. Heap proposes new production methods and forms of expression created from close proximity to an origin through the integration of nature.
