Jagae (eng: Lacquerware) is a coffee table with an atypical, randomly shaped mother of pearl decoration on an atypical zigzag top and legs. Every piece of mother of pearl was cut off by the craftsman with a knife into designated shapes in mosaic format.
Jagae is considered as an “old generation’s furniture” in Korea. To change the misconceptions and make them approachable to younger generations, we introduced contemporary aesthetics to this piece. Also, Jagae furniture uses wood resin for its finishing, which makes it biodegradable and eco-friendly.
