Jinyeong Yeon launched the Padded Chair Series to showcase how value can be re-established among discarded materials. The collection includes repurposed prototypes of padding, products with minor defects like a broken zipper, and deadstock items. The goal is to create a playful and unique furniture design with inconsistent patterns and unexpected pockets.
By highlighting the versatility of discarded materials, the furniture collection amplifies our growing social duty to expand the life cycle of our products. Padding is one of the largest polluters in the world, which is why the Padded Chair Series mainly focuses on upcycling padded prototypes. The collection features a plush white couch, a cushiony armchair, a long-backed armchair, and a soft two-seater bench.
