I took a version of a simple and highly functional object, the chabudai, and applied the rules, regulations and concepts of my own work to create something new from an old design. In the piece I wanted to pose questions about utility, form, perception and expectations. I translated the age old object into a case good that questions the function and meaning of the original.
