"I was inspired by the patterns which are normally used for Korean traditional house and furniture," Jeong Yong told Dezeen.

"I believe that Korean traditional houses and furniture are practical, and the balance between straight lines and curves of the pattern makes it more beautiful."

One chair is lower and wider than the other, and Jeong Yong has personified the set by naming it King and Queen Chair.

"The King is not too fancy but has strong facial impression. However, the Queen is more fancy and at the same time she lowers her position to warm a embrace," the designer said.
