"Layers of time appear through the visible essence of amber. Extracting inspiration from this ancient material, Jaeuk Jung has created a solution to reflect on the final moments of decaying objects. Michael Thonet’s design classic “chair No. 14” is forever sealed with the help of high technology into the amber-like chambers of polymer. An object from the past can live even longer, sharing classic beauty as contemporary design. Amber Chair is an indication about the present and future, through telling a story of respect and creating a new cycle for objects."
This piece was part of Milan Design Week 2010 "THE SAVAGE MIND / LA PENSÉE SAUVAGE" (which by the way is almost as savage as the coast).
Dear Jaeuk Jung, amber is the color of your energy.
