Selfportrait” is a graduation project based on the emotions and suppressed feelings what Ka-Lai has experienced. The chair expresses the designer’s own personality and character.

In the past I have always found myself to be a quiet and introvert person. I suppressed my own emotions and didn’t dare to show my feelings to other people. I was afraid that people would find me weird if I show them the real me. It felt like there was something growing on me what gets bigger and bigger like a tumor.I always tend to hide away my personality, but on the other hand I wanted nothing more but to open up and just be myself.
