Yoonseul: Manridong Reflecting Seoul 2017

Since Manridong public art project is not permanent installation, ‘Recoding’ which keep a record of temporary content is important. Also, recoding how this work and project change the environment of Manridong is one of the important parts of ‘Yoonseul’ project. Under the idea of “A Place is not completed thing but getting completed and it’s the result of processing and practicing”, we suggest PLACE MAKING which contains ART, ACTION, ARCHIVE in one circulation.

Roof Sentiment 2015

The front yard (madang, 마당) of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) Seoul face the Gyeongbokgung Palace which is very strong site-specific context. There are three layers superimposed on this front yard which used to belong to Jongchinbu (종친부, Office of the Royal Genealogy in Lee dynasty), now is the open public space of MMCA Seoul, and be a platform for Y.A.P in the summer season. These multi-layered placeness and time is a key issue of SoA’s practice.

Geodesic Chair-Vault for the Interspace Dialogue 2013 Interspace Dialogue is a project to install a small-scale screening room for the experimental film festival Off and Free inside Seoul Museum of Art. Plastic parasol chair is one of typical temporary furniture especially to be used for outdoor big events (concert, performance, campaign, etc.) SoA rent 400 white plastic chairs and make a temporary theater inside the crystal room in the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA). The temporary theater is designed to be geodesic chair-vault inside which people sit on the same plastic parasol chair and watch the experimental film of Marina Abramovic.

The theater made of only chairs provoke the question, ‘‘what is the theater?’ For the geodesic chair-vault, we invent new tectonics of stacking chairs converting the compressive force into tension force. We make a space in between below chair and upper chair due to tie a cable which is shorter than the length of chair leg. So we can control the stacking space. The existing details which are holes for drainage on the parasol chair and handle for moving on the backside of chair are used as the vault detail. Finally tensile forced vault construction using 400 pieces of plastic parasol chairs are made. After film festival done, these whole chairs be returned.

Society of Architecture (SoA) was founded in 2010 at Seoul. SoA is young architect group working on projects about environment construction in various size of scale based on analysis from the social condition of architecture and urbanism. Based on understanding about modern life, we are searching for new possibilities of architecture that can make it more enrich.

COINONIA is a label by Momoko Hashigami and Kiho Kim. They established COINONIA in 2010, Milan and launched their first 2010-2011F/W collection in Paris.

Momoko Hashigami majored in international studies at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo, then studied fashion design and techniques at Tokyo Bunka Fashion College. She graduated from the women’s fashion department of Central St Martin’s, London. While studying she gained work experience at John Galliano and other fashion houses in Paris. She participated in several international competitions including ITS4. After graduating she worked at Antonio Marras in Italy.

Kiho Kim majored in clothing and textile department at Hangseung University in Seoul. After graduating he worked at Parkyounsoo studio in Seoul. Then he studied pattern making at Carlo Secoli in Milan and fashion design at Polimoda in Florence. During his study he participated in several international competitions including ITS3. After finishing his studies he worked at Antonio Marras in Italy.

COINONIA’s universal theme is creating ‘Conceptual Contemporary’ garment and accessory for creative women. The collection pieces are first created on the mannequins to be given a life and a story by hand under a seasonal concept. Experimental and architectural shape, dynamic cutting, and sensitive details and colors are then introduced to define their characters. Narrative and conceptual mood is always there as the essence of their works. Feminine but masculine, still but dynamic, tender but hard… These contradictions are the source of their creation to be mixed up and give a birth to new designs.

Louver Chair Aluminum, Acrylic, Tempered glass 480 x 460 x 840 mm

Louver series began with an idea of utilizing existing industrial material with a different perspective, and those were an aluminum louver and an aluminum extrusion frame. We focused on their raw aesthetics, features, and refined their roughness while taking advantage of the industrial medium.

A louver is the architectural element. It is each a set of angled slats or flat strips fixed or hung at regular intervals to allow air or light to pass through. This element can be found on buildings, engineering equipment, or the vehicles around us.

We selected the aluminum louver as the main theme of the project because it is manufactured in various sizes and shapes through existing molds, and it can be easily modified. We manipulated the beauty of repeating horizontal lines, which became a character of the furniture series.

The basic structure of the furniture is built with an aluminum extrusion frame system that allows versatility. The aluminum frame can be extruded through various molds and trimmed to the desired length. Furthermore, the frame does not need to be welded and can be assembled in an array of ways through the use of various hardware. Aluminum frame has been used to support or build industrial equipment and we have found it to be solid enough to build furniture. We emphasized the clean straight lines and reduced its roughness through the minimum exposure of hardware for the furniture series.

On top of the structure, surfaces are filled with three different elements: louver, tempered glass, and translucent acrylic. Louver visually blocks the plane as it connects the space, while tempered glass visually connects the space as it blocks the plane. Lastly, translucent acrylic with a logo has characteristics between the two. These elements with contrastive aesthetics are working together with their own characteristic in each piece.

Louver Shelf Aluminum, Acrylic, Tempered glass 1600 x 500 x 1850 mm

Louver series consists of eight types of furniture: cabinet, shelf, desk, table, low table, chair, stool, and bench. Each furniture’s size and structure can be designed to the meet the specificities of a user’s demands because of the flexibility found within the industrial material. Moreover, we believe the project has the ability to surpass the eight types of furniture in this series by applying the same logic to numerous types of products.
