Reminiscent of Campana Brothers' work, Jay Sae Jung Oh's Savage Chair combines a modern plastic camp aesthetic with what one generally considers a more natural woven surface. The outcome is a beautifully complex object that demands attention and consideration of the design community.
Jay Sae Jung Oh currently lives in NYC where she works for Gaetano Pesce.
From the Designer:
Manufactured objects conspicuously transform into unexpected new forms, making a strong statement about our current cultural condition of abundance. Sharp attention is focused on reconsideration of the ordinary. In this project, I started to collect discarded plastic objects, assembled them together, and wrapped them with a natural material. The transformation occurs in the amalgamated form and the concealment of this form. Innovation, invention, and beauty can emerge from anywhere, even the most familiar, ordinary and everyday.
