Chen says the clever home bar is a hybrid of an architectural element and a piece of furniture. "There’s a level of detail, intricacy, and workmanship in making these kinds of pieces that’s much more consistent with what you find in furniture," Chen says. "But the way it's used is much more like architecture. Its transformability makes the space around the piece also part of the piece. The choreography of how you move around it and access parts of it is something that we think about a lot."
