‘Simulacre’ series is made in a traditional Korean lacquer technique — Ott-Chil. Customarily applied on wood, this lacquer is the heritage of a pre-industrial era when technics, skills, and patience were the only ways of making. Instead of using wood, Studio Seungbin Yang works with paper, a lightweight material suited to our mobile lives and less heavy connotations to the past. The Ott-Chil technique transforms the fragile and porous paper material into waterproof, durable, sterilized, and eco-friendly artifacts. Limited edition of 6.
