Useful Living

Useful Living is a series of ready-to-assemble furniture consisting of a shelf, rack and chair by Berlin-based designer Lee Sanghyeok.

 

The oak timber, a classic Danish choice for wooden furniture, and the custom designed brass joints lend a natural harmony to the Useful Living series. The furniture collection mimics scaffolding structures in construction sites, and in its flexible design, it also reflects a nomadic lifestyle of impermanence. 

Useful Shelf features wood-smoked shelves, while Useful Rack is stripped of excessive decoration leaving focus on the aesthetic of the structure. Useful Chair has a minimal but strong structure and tells a story once the sitter engages with the object.
