echoism chair by jaeyoung jang

‘echoism chair’ by jaeyoung jang 



sound is a special gift. it is a tool for expressing emotion and mind, and a tool for enabling the experience of various emotions. thought of as an object of art, sound can create new stories through its encounter with this work’s users. designer jaeyoung jang’s ‘echoism chair’ tells the the story of our emotions and environment through beating, hitting, and plucking sounds, as we relax and feel the melodies with our body, and as we feel the natural tones with our heart, new stories of ourselves, sounds, and the work are created.















designboom has received this project from our ‘DIY submissions‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their own work for publication. see more project submissions from our readers here.

  • Hello!

    I apologize for my late response to your letter. I really appreciate that you are interested in our production. Actually, our chair is not mass-produced. Every chair is hand crafted. Therefore, you might feel it’s a little bit expensive.

    If you don’t mind, would you answer a few questions about why you’re interested in the chair? Please reply back at [email protected].

    Thank you very much.
