‘onyang lamp collection’ is a series of lamps designed with the goal of creating contemporary objects that interact with the materials and collections used in the architecture of the onyang folk museum. the project is based on onyang folk museum by architect itami jun (1937-2011) and seokchul kim (1943-2016) in asan-si of korea. the museum was built in a way that emphasizes the properties of raw materials such as wood, rock, and red brick for reflecting landscape around. designer seungyeon shim transforms the structure and usage of the lampstand made in the joseon dynasty and applies contemporary typologies like a table, floor, wall, and pendant lamp for the contemporary setting.

copper is used as a core material for reflecting the architectural identity of the museum. the copper plate is applied as a reflector of the light source, and you can choose aluminum or black painted steel plates depending on the atmosphere of the space in mind. wall lamp and floor lamp have a mounting system similar to those used for the old-fashioned lampstand. with this method, the installation of the wall lamp is easier, and the floor lamp can adjust the height of the LED light source.
