Hanji (Side table and stool)
The handcrafted Hanji table and stool are the result of an experimental approach aimed to demonstrate the use of traditional materials and methods of production, such as Hanji and the dochim method, in modern design. Hanji, a traditional wood fiber paper, is labor intensive work and is still handcrafted in a workshop by human hands. The paper’s journey begins with cutting and drying the paper mulberry, followed by fiber extraction, and concludes with the dochim process, which involves pressing finished paper sheets to compact fibers. The Hanji table and stool are intended to bring the entire papermaking process together and shift the concept to a new shape and aesthetic.
<When the tiger used to smoke> collection implies the idea of long-term sustainability by working with masters of each field who deserves much more recognition, and incorporating modern furniture design with our traditional culture to make it more approachable.
