Jagae

<When tiger used to smoke> collection implies the idea of long-term sustainability by working with masters of each field who deserves much more recognition, and incorporating modern furniture design with our traditional culture to make it more approachable.
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.
