New Chairs from Seung-Yong Song: Object-A, Object-B & Object-E

New chairs by Korean artist and designer Seung-Yong Song are part furniture, part art objects, part art installations:

Object-A: “I am looking in every nook and cranny of the room to find hidden spaces. Under the table, beneath the bed, above the wardrobe… All the space in the room is completely full of odds and ends. There’s no other choice. And I start building my object like the city’s tallest building seen from the window in the room.”

Object-B: “I climb on a chair. I put books on a ladder. If things are freed from their own unique functions, we might agonize over how to use this objects.”

Object-E: “The unique name of things limit the range of product’s shape and function, but above all, the fact that there exists stereotyped function in accordance with each unique name suppresses my imagination. I am not willing to deny or destroy the identity based on the stereotype, but I only reinterpret the uses I need in my own design language.”
