We were selected in the competition of the KTCC (Korea Traditional Culture Center) for designing an object using the traditional materials.

While researching the traditional materials, we met Namgwon Lyu, traditional Korean lacquer craftsman at the first workshop. He invited us to his workshop in Namwon, where we were interested in the color and gloss of the lacquerware.

After visiting his workshop, we decided to produce the stool and paperweight coated in the traditional Korean lacquer. Whereas we needed to differentiate the lacquer from the other finishing materials, we concentrated on the gloss of the lacquer.

The surface of Yongmaru coated in the lacquer glows when a light shines on it. It creates a subtle and magnificent atmosphere.

Ore is the small paperweight that delicately expresses the gloss of the lacquer. We made the shape by hand for the surface which reflects the light and produced modeling, 3d print, aluminum casting in order based on it. It creates a silent and magnificent atmosphere on the table or paper.
