Description

Traditional Korean lacquerware is made using secretions from the Ott tree. Extremely labour intensive and costly, the technique is becoming increasingly rare. Impressed by the properties of this waterproof, durable, antibacterial and eco-friendly lacquer, Seungbin Yang brings a modern version to the table with '21g', using a paper base instead of wood. What was once luxurious and heavy has now become light and modern, designed for everyday use.
