Canadian design studio Hi Thanks Bye debuts a monochromatic furniture collection with a Chinese touch. Dennis Lee writes 

Toronto-based design duo Stein Wang and Topher Kong of Hi Thanks Bye have introduced a furniture collection that is a quirky blend of cultures. Entitled Collection 0, it is set to launch at the London Design Fair this month, and is described by the pair as "a sculptural interpretation of the Canadian landscape fused with Chinese aesthetic, maintaining the functionality and versatility of a living space". Their inspiration is two-fold: it comes from places such as Canada's Algonquin Park, Bruce Peninsula and Fogo Island, and from traditional Chinese gardens and their formal arrangement of water, plants and rocks.

The result from Hi Thanks Bye is a collection of six monochromatic contemporary furniture pieces, including a shelf/ divider, dining chair, side table, floor lamp, bar stool and a rug seat (in collaboration with textile designer Avis Ho). The green-coloured pieces are made from powder-coated stainless steel, while some items have additional upholstery.
