Feng-Shui Satirical Home Products : yoojin chung

Korean interdisciplinary designer Yoojin Chung introduces a look at his Capturing Qi collection. The main design inspiration is rooted in the traditional Chinese system of feng shui — this is the practice of orienting people and items in relation to the space.

The main purpose of this is to find the best harmony and balance of the space — this practice dates back to 4000 BC. Chung also notes that today’s understanding of feng shui is a ‘quick fix’ approach without the philosophical origins. The capsule features 3 pieces and it is comprised of a crystal ball, a wind chime, and a fountain. These are designed as smart home devices that function like a lab apparatus.
