Cosmetic Surgery Kingdom / Conceptual Furniture

Cosmetic Surgery Kingdom
Cosmetic Surgery Kingdom

This project explores the unusually high number of Aesthetic surgery in South Korea. Especially, the modification of our body as a material to express dignity and to get a better position in society could be compared of design activity. My role as a designer to observe social issue and react on it in. Therefore, The project ‘Cosmetic Surgery Kingdom’ is also translated into a design as hypothetical place. The final design proposal is that what if the designer took the rule as a surgeon and give cosmetic surgeries to old chairs to look like Iconic chair such as Eames chair. I played the rule as a surgeon and gave the surgery to old chairs.
