when creating, south korean graphic and industrial designer sohyun yun believes in the power of design to make people happy. with her ‘layer’ chair, she delivers a seating object that aims at customization, individuality, and sustainability. ‘layer’ is made out entirely of clear acrylic that allows for a see-through structure. both the back and the base of the chair have a void where the user can fit three different layers of printed or colored acrylic, or even wood, glass, or any other material that comes in mind.

the user can add the three different layers both to the back and the seat 

 

 

 

the chair was conceived especially as a piece that hopefully people will not get tired of, thanks to its modifiable characteristics. the project’s starting point is a reflection on our consumerist society, where people follow trends and buy ready-made goods that will fit their needs and taste until a new one comes and they throw away one to get the other. by being able to adapt the ‘layer’ chair, the idea of having a new chair just by changing the layers arises. people can make their own chair as if they were selecting songs, focusing on the contents.

the ‘layer’ chair comes with a limited number of prints of your choice, giving exclusivity and originality to each piece. textures, famous artworks or different types of patterns can be added to create that personal and original touch.
