One Pillar is a stool. It was inspired during the trip in Hanoi, Vietnam in June 2018. There was one main inspiration for me to design it. The inspiration was the architecture shape of One Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi, Vietnam. The whole structure of One Pillar stool is developed from One Pillar Pagoda’s architecture style. One Pillar Pagoda is actually one of Vietnam’s two most iconic temples located in Hanoi. One Pillar is fused with architectural and historical elements inside the design. It can help re-bring out the architecture & construction aesthetics of One-Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi.
