Duriban table and Gicha train stool

"Our intention is to revive the aesthetics of tradition and take care of children, the users of the furniture" say Kim and Seo.


Duriban table detail

The dureong-chima, a skirt used to wrap around the bellies of babies, is the motif for the Duriban table for children, "the edge is materialized as fabric so that children's encounter furniture is like an embrace of something warm."


Ahye child's bed

The Ahye bed is designed after the curves of unhye and danghye, traditional Korean shoes, "allowing children to sleep alone feeling as if they are in the warm protection and tender love of their mothers."



Ban-Jang closet

The corner ornamentation that supports the structure of traditional furniture is the motif for the corners of the Ban-Jang closet, "made of soft and thick fabric to protect children from corners of the wardrobe."



Gicha train stools

The Gicha stools are connected like train cars "so that children can play around their own space".
