Furniture objects by Misc Studio
May 26, 2021

Misc Studio, based in Seoul, introduced the two unique pieces of furniture which embrace the traditional and modern approach.

Klassiker is a lounge chair inspired by the structure and concept of Korean traditional A-frame carrier, known as ji-gae, and it was developed based on a modernistic perspective. 

Similar to the structure of ji-gae, Klassiker is designed to effectively support weight even with a simple system. The tension of the extended front and rear legs and the stability of oval-shaped wooden support create an elaborate balance in design. The A-frame structure on the back of the support is delicately designed for its durability and the aesthetic expression of the classical ji-gae structure. The chair was further refined upon the application of modern design. 

SEOULBAN is a side table that embodies the reinterpretation of an emblematic dining table in Korean culture from 37 A.D. until today. The simplicity of design marks the old days of Seoul.

The functionality of marginalized Korean dining table has been extended to designing a side table to improve its usability, especially, during the transition from a sedentary lifestyle to a western lifestyle. Inspired by Susunjeondo, an old map that portrays Hanyang (old Seoul) during the Joseon Dynasty period, SEOULBAN reflects a modernized dining table and periodical linkage to traditional furniture. A heavy wooden top that is 6cm in thickness represents the boundary of Seoul in a squared shape with curved edges depicted from Susunjeondo. The molding details around the table signify eight castle gates that surrounded Seoul.
