Nong by Joseph Yang

Nong is a modular furniture collection created by South Korea-based designer Joseph Yang. This work is a reinterpretation of Korean traditional furniture for modern use. It was inspired conceptually by the function of traditional furniture called ‘Nong’, which can be layered, and presents various forms of beauty through the arrangement and movement of units. It also minimizes decorative elements and provides a concise image by applying the structural features (Korean joint) of traditional furniture. Through this, this work seeks to explore the practical aesthetics of Korean traditional furniture and find new formative values.
