The Fyr Stool is named after the Danish word for pine, emphasizing the material’s unique character and durability. The combination of square and round elements creates a perfectly balanced design that exudes strength and elegance. Striving to create a stool that is both practical, simple and intriguing, designer Yuchen Wu explored numerous sketches before arriving at the final design. Of the design process, Yuchen says: “When designing something as simple as a stool, the challenge is to make it uncomplicated and practical, but still interesting. The result is a well-balanced combination of sturdiness, simplicity and detail, that at the same time allows the pine material to take center stage.”
Yuchen's upbringing in the picturesque countryside of Taiwan, surrounded by natural beauty such as the sea and mountains, has become a significant source of inspiration in her design work. She has had a lifelong passion for art and design, and pursued design studies with the goal of creating items that enrich people's lives.
After completing her studies, Yuchen worked at a design studio in Taiwan, where she was exposed to diverse design projects. It was during this time that she discovered her calling in furniture and accessory design. In pursuit of gaining international design experience, Yuchen decided to explore the industry abroad and eventually landed in Denmark, where she now works as an in-house designer at Normann Copenhagen.
Yuchen's design philosophy is centered around achieving a harmonious balance between aesthetics and functionality. Her aim is to create designs that are not only practical for everyday use but also imbued with beauty and poeticism. To achieve this, she begins her design process by weaving a story into the idea and then focusing on the technical aspects. Furthermore, Yuchen prioritizes sustainability in her design process and seeks sustainable solutions to the challenges she encounters.
Yuchen’s inspiration stems from her observations of people's interaction with design in everyday life, public furniture design, and vintage designs, which she reinterprets to create modern versions that are relevant to contemporary life.
