It’s wonderful to come across a designer whose design qualities extend beyond a specific niche. One such designer has proven that a good eye for design can encompass several distinct looks while maintaining high-quality function.

Born in Singapore in 1971, Nathan Yong received his Master in Design degree from the University of New South Wales. He has received numerous design awards including the prestigious Singapore President’s Design Award for 2008 Designer of the Year. He has worked with a number of clientele such as Design Within Reach, Ligne Roset and Ethnicraft.

Resembling the framework of a bird cage, Nathan Yong has designed a chair that was inspired by the loveable Looney-tunes cartoon character Tweety. Yong entertains two questions in his bird cage design. Does a cage protect its inhabitants from predators or does it protect what’s on the outside from what’s kept inside the cage? Designed to be used both indoors and outdoors, this cage-like chair has managed to seduce us with its exaggerated back rest and a bright, Tweety-coloured cushion cover that stands out against the dark metal frame.
