‘fake shaker’ by jaebeom jeong

korean designer jaebeom jeong of stonewater studio has based ‘fake shaker’, a portable furniture piece, on the traditional shaker-style chair.   along with an instruction manual, and various pieces of wood — rose, walnut, oak and beach — the user can make, and take apart, their own seating object. meant for urban farmers, each part is handcrafted with an applied joint technique to make the pieces easy to assemble. each kit also comes with a canvas or hemp seat.   

the concept is a modern reinterpretation of chairs made by the shakers, one of a few religious groups that formed in eighteenth-century england. the community was self-sufficient in food and goods with their lifestyle firmly based on order and efficiency. their furniture pieces were simple and durable, thus their designs are still prevalent today. ‘fake shaker’ takes that idea and puts it in the context of a society which is in constant movement and needs their belongings to be easily transportable.

the chairs are on show at the KCDF gallery as part of an urban farmer’s atelier exhibition until may 20th, 2012.
