Lila Jang, featured previously on Neatorama for her delightful wall-climbing sofa, is a South Korean sculptor who bases her designs on 18th-century French furniture and adds fanciful touches to the traditional lines.
Jang has received accolades internationally through gallery shows and art fairs showcasing her unique design perspective. According to Jang, her pieces are a statement about humanity being stuck in the middle of "that constant struggle between reality and the ideal.”
Jang also drew inspiration from living in her cramped Parisian apartment, in which she noticed that tables and chairs only seemed to fit if they were bent out of shape first. Learn more about Lila Jang and see more of her work at this website and in this post on Beautiful Decay.
