‘eaves stools’ and ‘seo table’ by din and dip design studio

 

 

jongho park and junbum park of seoul-based firm din and dip design studio have reinterpreted the role of traditional korean furniture for the contemporary setting through their ‘eaves’ series of stools and complementary furniture pieces. the collection include the ‘seo(書) desk’, the ‘ron(論) table’ and the ‘gong(工) table’, each one emphasizing the characteristics of classic korean design through the means of modern elements and materials. the ‘seo desk’ is an extension of the use and shape of conventional workstation known as ‘seo-an’ – and in keeping with present-day culture, the design was created specifically to easily accommodate electronic devices. the ‘ron table’ was conceived to seat multiple people, with two casters installed on the table leg help to move the table with ease and host a variety of activities in the space. the final piece, ‘the gong table’, is able to be used as a table or a desk – especially fabricated to feature simple lines and clean proportions to give a sense of visual stability and calm atmosphere.
