MISC dance show highlights modern aesthetic of Korean furniture collection



Seoul-based studio MISC presents retrospective furniture designs reinterpreted with a modernist perspective to remember traditional Korean culture. the project encompasses the representation of the emotions infused in the MISC furniture – ‘klassiker’ chair and ‘seoulban’ board – through modern dance. In addition, through a “living performance project”, the studio explores the relationship between people and space to achieve interaction via visual resonance beyond language. all images courtesy of studio MISC

Studio MISC introduces an integrated object, combining performance and design to invite the viewer to immerse themselves in the furniture. the movement of a dancer is developed on the basis of an inspirational dynamic derived from the unused product. it emerges as an aesthetic object through which the furniture produces a cognitive domain of physical remains.

‘klassiker’ developed from a modernist perspective, takes the form of a lounge chair inspired by the structure and concept of the traditional Korean A-frame stand, known as ji-gae. the chair is designed to effectively support the weight even with a simple system. the tension of the elongated front and rear legs and the stability of the oval-shaped wooden stand create an elaborate balance in the design.

“Seoulban” takes shape as a side table that embodies the reinterpretation of a dining table emblematic of Korean culture from AD 37 to the present day. inspired by susunjeondo, an ancient map that depicts hanyang (old seoul) during the joseon dynasty period, seoulban reflects a modernized dining table and a periodic link to traditional furnishings. a 6cm thick thick wooden top represents the seoul boundary in a square shape with curved edges. Meanwhile, the molding details around the table signify eight castle gates that surrounded Seoul.
