In the primitive environment, ancient humans would use thick tree trunks and rocks as chairs. They roll rocks and tree trunks around the jungle, taking them with them to eat, drink, live and travel, giving more possibilities.Modern chairs, trees are constantly processed and transformed to serve people with fixed shapes and functions

.And how the tables and chairs in the primitive society are not completely influenced by human beings, and people adapt to the product of nature for use. Chairs at that time didn't necessarily have solid supports, fixed chairs, a definite function. But as an uncertain ambiguous object, people are not sure whether it can be used as a variety of carriers. They looked for space for this carrier, to make the curved surface and bump of wood meaningful. People tried different angles and finally settled on this piece of wood. This serves as a starting point, rolling the chair to adapt to the environment according to different functions and terrain such as the difference between the steps inside and outside. As it merges into its surroundings, the chair can be stabilized by retractable sticks embedded in it, making this new possibility visible on paper.
