That quote, from Kai Yeo of The Bureau, nicely sums up this latest project called the Moe Chair. The Moe Chair is the old-style school chair that used to be found in every Singaporean classroom, a visual touchstone for anyone who has been through the local school system here. The Bureau's 6-piece version on this chair is homage to the old yet has created something entirely new and still very functional. In fact, no sooner had the chairs been designed when new Skyve Elementary Bistro and Bar at Winstedt Road picked them up to use in their new space.
