korean fashion designer byungsub kim introduces his new chair design, titled ‘be on my own to be two’. deeply influenced by way of the post-pandemic truth we’re these days dwelling in, in addition to the idea that of social distancing, the product takes form as a unmarried chair that turns into two, due to an built-in reflect.

the design by way of byungsub kim is made with stainless-steel and a reflect floor that displays the opposite part of the bench. except the chair, the person who sits on my own visually duplicates too. on this means, the mission seeks to inspire voluntary, energetic participation in social distancing, and specific that you must be on my own for some time with a view to go back to the arena of dwelling in combination.
‘sitting at the bench on my own completes the bench the place two other people take a seat with themselves mirrored within the reflect,’ explains the fashion designer. ‘simply as two other people appear to be sitting on my own, we will be able to all be in combination once more via social distancing.’
