In this ingenious design, the cylindrical form of a single bamboo segment becomes a minimalist, nature-inspired headrest. To keep the headrest stable, the craftsman squared off the stem’s edges. Rectangles cut into the side reveal the stem’s hollow interior, lightening the design and adding room for air circulation. Crafted around 1900 in Shanxi province, the headrest was used to protect intricate hairstyles during sleep. Its minimalist design and organic nature give it a wonderful sculptural presence.
