Ha Jihoon Transforms Plastic Waste into Functional furniture

 

Furniture designer Ha Ji-hoon collaborates with LG Chem, creating RE:SOBAN, a modern reinterpretation of the traditional Korean furniture, Soban. LG Chem’s RE:SOBAN campaign transforms post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic materials into sustainable furniture, challenging the conventional lifespan of plastic. The science company collects, sorts, and processes plastic waste into PCR material, maintaining properties akin to virgin plastics. The design harmoniously blends traditional Korean cultural elements with contemporary aesthetics. Crafted from recycled plastic, RE:SOBAN features intricate details inspired by flower petals and bold lines reminiscent of Korean folk design. Ha Ji-hoon, recognized with the Craft Prize 2020, elevates the material to create practical and elegant dining tables.

made from recycled plastic, RE:SOBAN series comes in many colors

 

Nature-friendly and portable, RE:SOBAN showcases the potential of PCR materials in sustainable living. The knockdown structure allows easy assembly and portability, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use, from daily living to picnics and camping. This innovative approach led by LG Chem and executed by Ha Ji-hoon promotes a sustainable lifestyle by extending the life cycle of plastic and minimizing carbon emissions. RE:SOBAN reflects a commitment to reusing existing resources and encouraging users to embrace a more sustainable way of living.
