SOOJIN Kang views today’s culture of mass production and disposable fashion as deeply problematic. Her suggestion is that we consider our basic needs against our possessions and use the materials already within our means wisely and beautifully. One of her outcomes has been a collection of ‘dressed furniture’.

Kang’s sensitive approach has resulted in pieces that – through the use of traditional crafts – have been rejuvenated, yet still retain their original identity. These suede covered chairs are particular favourites of mine. And her jewellery is pretty interesting too. Take the bracelet below: antique chain and plastic is combined to create, in Kang’s words, designs that are both ‘unique and meaningful’. Visit her site soojinkang.net for more information and images.
