Kung Chan Cycle | Wheeled Object
98E, Ki Lung Street, Sham Shui Po

By combining several dissociated features, Young’s team created an object, not just a chair. This mobile piece facilitates bicycle maintenance, tool storage and social interaction, and celebrates the rich characters of the SSP bike shop. They repurposed a chair sample (designed by Michael Young for Citta Design in New Zealand) with building supplies from local hardware stores to create a low chair, which swivels to retrieve parts, stores tools-for-now on a tray, and tools-for-later in a box under the seat. It is fitted with wheels to make rolling it into the shop at night easier, and a beer holder and bottle opener for sundown drinks with neighbours.
