Lila Jang’s Surreal French Furniture

Inspired by everyday problems, Lila Jang, a young sculptor from  South Korea, has created a unique twist on  18th century French furniture. While creating furniture designs in her tiny Parisian apartment,  the confined living space triggered Jang to realise that there was only one way she could fit in all of the beautiful furniture  she wanted to create –  to bend and deform their classic shape to produce new surreal and playful pieces.

Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary also translated in another form to Jang, who explained that the process let her escape the monotonous and mundane routine of real life and get a taste of utopia by visiting a fantasy land, without completely disconnecting with reality.

Jang explains, “My work represents who and where we are as human beings: in the midpoint of that constant struggle between reality and the ideal.”
