TheTh LingLi StoolS l was in­spired by the di­abolo, a tra­di­tional Chi­nese yo- yo made up of two bowl- like parts con­nected by an axle.

The mer­bau and rubber wood stool, de­signed by ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dent Lee Wen Horng. takes its name from the Chi­nese pull bell, cheling.

“Asia’s rich cul­ture and di­ver­sity have im­por­tant val­ues in in­flu­enc­ing mod­erni­sa­tion. For in­stance, the de­sign of the di­abolo has changed through­out his­tory. As so­ci­ety evolves, the de­mand on the de­sign of a func­tional ob­ject also be­comes much more im­por­tant. Fur­ni­ture th­ese days is not only ex­pected to be user- friendly, but aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing as well,” said Lee, 20, from Sepang, Se­lan­gor.
