SǔnMǎo - Chinese Joints is a traditional Chinese way for connecting woods. This technique can be applied to big structures, like buildings and bridges, but also to small object like furniture and window. Ancient Chinese craftsmen used advanced wood joints to complete the three-dimensional structure.

Nowadays the hardwood materials gradually faded. Based on the concept of deconstruction, Rong Design Exhibition sincerely invites you to discuss in which direction will SǔnMǎo-based design go.
