balancing between straight and curved lines, the ‘king and queen chair’ by korean designer jeong yong is based on the design of traditional korean furniture. reinterpreting the beauty of simple patterns, the pieces reflect the practical nature of korea’s approach to furniture design. the king stands strong, and doesn’t appear too fancy with bold lines and a geometric shape, the queen on the other hand, is a little fancier as she lowers her position in a warmer embrace.
