Han River shelf
Han River Shelf: It was created with the concept of youth in their 20s and 30s where single-person households are concentrated. The sporty and young feeling of the Han River fits well with this, so the shelf was built using the morphological language of the Han River Bridge.
Small portable dining table made with Steel: This product is a modern reinterpretation of small Korean portable dining table called Gong-go-snang (Soban). The existing wooden form was converted to metal, and it was manufactured so that consumers can easily assemble it by folding and with screws instead of welding.
As long as we collaborate, we will create the best results through each other's strengths. TAMKEN has been leading the domestic steel furniture industry through various production facilities. We plan to use the material, steel, based on such know-hows in production process. The various technologies that large companies can have, but not small workshops, can create forms that cannot be produced in the past, and can be produced at reasonable prices through mass production. Designer Jeongho Ko has been working on various works based on the existing industrial design. By creating a story through morphological language, we were able to differentiate ourselves from existing industrial products. With these characteristics we will add a new story to TAMKEN's furniture.
Working with a number of people, not working alone, is also an ability. This is what I learned through the 2019 Design Fair, but it is also the knowledge I gained this year. As long as I work in a society, I have no choice but to communicate with other people and live together. I think such studies on society never end and the more I live within, the more I learn new things. Works and products are a little different. Works are important to how they express one’s thoughts and stories, but different from it, products are customized to consumers. However, ‘a story’ is a more subjective thing to creators than consumers. We created two pieces of furniture to see how this subjectivity was communicated to consumers.
It was nice to combine the various opinions and novel ideas of professional designers in each field, and we were able to create the best results by combining the strengths of each other.
