JOONGHO CHOI STUDIO
Ancient wisdom and contemporary looks interweave in the projects of 27-year-old South Korean Joongho Choi. Fine examples of that are the Chorong lamp and the Sharing table which have kept ancient Korean tradition in terms of their functionality and display the features of modern design in terms of their appearance.
The Chorong table is inspired by traditional Korean lighting, which is hung on a long, fixed tilted rod. In Sharing the Asian (called Sang) and the Western kitchen table are in harmony. Choi designed a low table to which longer legs can be attached and in this way he united Eastern and Western culture. At the same time, the Korean tea ceremony is at the basis of its design. The centre of the table has a special place for the warming of tea.
