Says Seung-Yong, "This is not a study of shape and function system, but a process of study which can draw out the communication between objects and human beings."
An oversized lampshade above the chair, made of traditional Korean paper, creates "your own space where you can feel the coziness like a bird's nest."

Two typical archetypes are fused to create an entirely new form of a rocking chair.
8 chairs of different shapes and functions are arranged and reconstituted as various spaces depending on user need.
Each chair is also available for use independently.
