South Korean designer Soojin Kang, a graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, created her Dressed Furniture project as a way to strike a "balance between emotional connections and commercial result by creating unique furniture and objects." Her handcrafted furniture pieces make use of materials and colors to "tell stories through her designs." Kang places a strong emphasis on the importance of hand made quality goods that are anything but disposable in an effort to work against the trend of cheaply made factory furniture.
Our psychology, the low prices, encourages consumers to buy more than what they actually need. As a result, when something is cheap and easily replaceable, we easily throw it away; as easily as we purchased it! According to designer Soojin Kang, who "fights against this epidemic with needles and threads," she believes that the lack of consumer consciousness will increase even more in the future. She has therefore set out and hand crafted her own furniture, which is inspired by traditional crafts and antique raw materials. With this technique she aims at creating extremely unique pieces which are of limited production as there is only one of a kind!
