Description/

Rug and stool combination inspired by an old Korean phrase “When the tiger used to smoke” meaning “once upon a time”, with a humor from folk paintings of bunnies holding the pipe for the tiger in horror.

This piece is a collaboration of two different generations and techniques. Tiger rug is made by a young artist who uses modern tufting technique and stool by an older craftsman who uses old Korean traditional embroidery technique, while rug and stool are used together to create a piece that harmonizes.

The embroidery of the stool gives a glimpse of the craftsman’s technique with every stroke calculated to maximize the sense of depth and the direction of the stroke giving the rabbit a life-like looking coat.

<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.
