It all started after the discovery by the Taiwanese designer Jacky Wu, of some pieces of timber in a factory.

"I found some timbers in a factory. These timbers cracked during the process of drying, so they were considered as useless material because of the crack. However, the crack is the best part of the timbers for me. It tells the story and shows the power of nature. So I lacquered the crack and machined it as a vase then lacquered the inside after. Thus, the crack became a visual point on the vase. This, turned the defect into a theme of design, could be the example for the concept “Useful brings useless, useless brings usefulness
