update: the ‘CATable’ is presented at the 2015 gwangju design biennale as part of the ‘asian design hub’ exhibition that offers a look at how the world economy is shifting from west to east by highlighting objects that interpret and express the cultural traditions and design values of these three countries in a contemporary context. the show transmits the notion that design is something universal and easily understandable, and that people can feel empathy with the fact that good products can make our lives brighter as a result of combining long-established techniques with modern aesthetics and approaches.
