I AM A MONUMENT—CCTV Wardrobe by Li Naihan is part of her series of furniture replicas of well-known buildings; in this case, the CCTV Headquarters in Beijing. The 24-hour loop of the media cycle that inspired the original building’s design has turned into a loop for the daily act of getting dressed, with specialised compartments leading you on a defined path around the wardrobe.
In this video, Li Naihan discusses the concept and design process behind I AM A MONUMENT—CCTV Wardrobe, and how it reflects on traditional Chinese design ideas.
