Samwoong Lee's Octopus chair

Samwoong Lee's Octopus chair


Despite being covered in enough paua to blend in seamlessly at the old Paua shell house, Samwoong Lee's Octopus chair is really quite elegant. 

Part of a series, including a table and a lamp, the Octopus chair relies on the light-reflecting properties of the paua (or mother-of-pearl as Lee calls it) to give it an organic feel.
