"Acacia Confusa Chessboard with Tea Table" is made of the thermo-modification wood Acacia Confusa, which in Chinese implies the meaning of lovesickness, and the material is used to tell local stories. Overcoming the material's zigzagging interlocked grain and easily deformed texture, the design intentionally keeps nature of sapwood and forms an image of river, which serves as the border of two Chinese chess players. A series of works has been developed to present the most vivid aspect of living in Taiwan, namely tea sipping and chess playing. They also vividly embody artistic and humanistic aesthetics of local lifestyle.
