Useful Living by Sanghyeok Lee

Perhaps it’s the fact that being “jobless” was the number one motivator, or maybe it was the experiences of an on-the-move lifestyle of a young artist which led Time to Design 2013 winner Sanghyeok Lee to create this ready to assemble collection of three named Useful Living. The drive to be innovative, to come up with the aesthetics for life that speaks to people like you…sometimes we pout about where we are in life yet other times we choose to learn something.  It is in such moments great things come about. Being a nomadic kind of person, these furniture pieces are just perfect. Simply turn the beautiful brass nobs to connect the oak poles. Voíla!  Instant practical pieces to follow you from your next big break in this city to that city. The shelf, the chair, the rack all meet a standard of purity inspired by the Danish Art Workshop. They don’t suggest anything that holds you firmly to your current situation.  Their lightweight structures are free flowing and open to any “change.” And you know what, it feels good to have things that surround you in life to promote the kind of person you are.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
