Li Naihan: Furniture as Architecture
Li Naihan: Furniture as Architecture

As architects we see furniture-making as a process of building miniature architecture.

Li Naihan

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.
