I traveled to north east coast to collect inspiration and was stunned by its unique and distinctive geography.

“ At 80.8k, Coastal Highway in Nanya, there is a vast area of strange rocks that mark the start of a geological journey into the Northeast Coast. Their weathering patterns are so graceful that they look like paintings. Such dynamic wave-like patterns also remind people of the vigor of oceans. It is fair to say they are the most eminent features of the Northeast Coast. ” Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area Administration


Layers of wood were taken from the image of beautifully eroded rocks along the shore.

“ The rocks here belong to the Dapu Sandstone Layer, which is so rough that it took a long time for mother nature to sculpt them into the way they are today. The formations are unique. All of the rocks are inspiring. Many say their imagination run wild as they watch the rocks from different angles. ”

Soft PU on the top were transformed from the color and pattern of the rocks and it was also used to make the stool suitable for leisure sitting.

“ Washed by abundant rain during monsoon seasons, the rock surfaces have over time been covered with iron oxide with refined patterns. Due to weathering and erosion, the surfaces have different shades which make them look like earth-color paintings. ”
