Description/

Handcrafted by a nacre master. The Jagae table is a contemporary interpretation of traditional aristocratic furniture that has been used since the Goryeo dynasty (918~1392). Jagae (eng: lacquerware inlaid with mother-of-pearl) is an unique coffee table with nacre embellishments in organic shapes on an irregular zigzag top and legs. Every piece of nacre was cut off by the craftsman with a special knife into designated shapes in mosaic format. 

In Korea, Jagae is considered as “elder generation’s furniture.” WKND Lab applied contemporary aesthetics to this piece to overcome perceptions and make them approachable to younger generations. In addition, Jagae furniture is lacquered with wood resin, making it biodegradable and eco-friendly.

<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.
