Article

As the famous artist Yves Klein once said, “I had left the visible, physical blue at the door, outside, in the street. The real blue was inside, the blue of the profundity of space, the blue of my kingdom, of our kingdom!” Recently, WEPLUS Fuxing Space has transformed into a kingdom of the real Klein’s blue.

Chairs are said to be the test for the skills of a furniture designer. It is a necessity in life; it supports one during work, dinners, dates, or even procrastination; it gives one thought, taste, inspiration and a sense of belonging.

Regardless of where you come from, where your final destination is, the chairs will give you a place to rest your feet and and feel your feelings. “Stay with me”, as if they say.

Because blue is the color of the sky and the ocean; it is boundless. Hence, the show is dressed in Klein Blue; the visitors can fully immerse in the myriad of designs in these chairs as if they were in a different dimension. 

If the chairs could talk, then all of them would say: “STAY WITH ME”. Regardless of the punctuation you put at the end, these words are heartfelt and genuine, like the blue inside, the “real blue”, the “profound blue”.
