Furniture that seems to have been came alive with an individual personality are created by sculptor Lila Jang.
The Seoul-born artist creates pieces of 18th century French furniture that look like they got out of the Disney classic animation film “Beauty and the Beast”. A sofa seems to be trying to climb the wall, a chair is dancing to an unknown rhythm, a boudoir is left speechless by some sort of sight while an armchair is standing arrogantly wearing a high fashion dress with oversized shoulder pads.
The artist was inspired to create this collection while studying in Paris and living in a tiny apartment. The only way that she could fit the pieces she wanted in the small place available was to bend or deform them. Moreover, these creations were a creative way of escaping her daily routine and enrich it with much of imagination.
