Industrial design student Jeong Yong has created a pair of chairs with grid-like frames based on traditional Korean furniture.
"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.
The chair is made from sepetir wood and will come in black or white.
Jeong Yong is due to graduate next year from Konkuk University Glocal Campus in Seoul.
Other chairs we've published recently include one with a backrest and seat wrapped in thick lengths of cord and another with bird-shaped armrests.
