Chen Yun-Chih studied a bachelor’s in art and design at the Yuan Ze University from 2013-2017, and during August 2016 he participated in the Italian Design Summer School – Art, Society and Industry at the University of Bologna. From 2018 until 2020 Yun-Chih studied a master in wood-oriented furniture design at HDK-Valand Campus Steneby, University of Gothenburg.
Yun-Chih's master´s degree project was called Imagery and consisted of three chairs made in laminated wood inspired by traditional Taiwanese calligraphy signs for goat, horse and snake. Through the design process, Yun-Chih wanted to demonstrate the calligraphy’s movement and, in that way, reinforcing his own cultural identity while also incorporating the Scandinavian design values. During the autumn of 2020 Imagery was exhibited at the Steneby Artgallery and at the Museum of Furniture Studies as a part of the Ex-Works 2020 exhibition.
Chen Yun-Chih has also designed the table Pine Desk, inspired by the traditional Taiwanese student desk and the Nordic design standards. He has worked as a carpenter, a scale model maker and designer for the Långed Park Project. In 2016 he designed and manufactured an affordable canoe, a project that also consisted of workshops to teach people how to make a canoe with a limited access to tools.
