Jay Sae Jung Oh’s Wild seating mixtures will bend your thoughts in methods it has by no means been bent earlier than. What at first look appears like a stable wooden sculpture… is just not. The continued collection consists of artwork on the one hand and craft on the opposite, first composed of family objects attractively organized collectively. As soon as Oh is pleased with the composition, it’s hand wrapped with jute or cowhide cords to realize the striped look. The manufactured objects beneath are remodeled into one-of-a-kind sculptural items and furnishings, a direct jab aimed on the cultural state of abundance and obsolescence.
Half experiment, half sensible, the Korean designer’s newest additions to the Savage collection have been lately on show at Salon 94 Design’s FOG Design + Artwork group present. Oh’s designs are additionally featured within the everlasting collections of the Carnegie Museum of Artwork, Cranbrook Artwork Museum, San Francisco Museum of Fashionable Artwork and The Cooper Hewitt, and the Smithsonian Design Museum.
