modeled on traditional folding asian fans, ‘ryun’, constructed by master craftsmen in jeonju, korea for orijeen, allows users to dramatically change the shade by unfurling a bamboo frame. made with traditional korean paper (hanji), the piece presents a modern interpretation of a timeless accessory while achieving a balance between these two disparate forces. ‘ryun fan’ comes in a high and low version with subtle changes to the works entirety to render two one of a kind pieces.
