Kang Myung Sun cherishes a sense of slowness or an aesthetics adapting to the nature that has been ingrained in people’s lives as a precious cultural value and communicates ideas of living philosophy through her design. While her works are based on traditional craft technique that has been declining, she interprets contemporary culture and transforms into modernized form. Pursuing the beauty of structure, Kang utilizes the traditional craftsmanship used for lacquer work inlaid with mother-of-pearl in innovative way to emphasize the unique nature of the material and, ultimately, seeks to show us natural aspects of her works through organic and unstandardized. As a medium connecting the past and the present, the eclectic objects suggests well-balanced practicality and radiates the natural beauty.Challenging modern designs with her own study on physical properties of new materials and approach, Kang newly applies traditional lacquering techniques of two thousand year history in an attempt to feature the delicate and iridescent quality of mother-of-pearl. In the context, focused on practicality and harmony, the table and chairs introduced at Miami are more simplified and moderate in terms of structure and form than the previous works created by drawing her inspiration from sea.Interestingly, the unique color and tone of mother-of-pearl illuminate along the curved surface especially. The glowing white mother-of-pearl contrasts with lacquered black and vermilion-red surface of the table, seating and cabinet. Such contrast accents subtle and brilliant luster of mother-of-pearl and presents example of wise combination of Asian material and technique with modern practicality.
