1. The battle for Saigon. Pity the poor fighting man in Vietnam. The problem was always too much water or too little. In the early days of the war, water was shipped from California, the indigenous sort considered unsafe. Later it was made “palatable” with huge quantities of chlorine. Wiser men know to fill up with the natural variety. 1968

2. In an attempt to impose the American value system on the Vietnamese, the Marines concluded operations called, in Orwellian Newspeak, “county fairs.” Villagers were taught how to wash their children, made to watch Disney films on hygiene, had their teeth pulled, were given real toilets with seats, and were introduced to filter tips. 1967

3. This operation by the 1st Cavalry Division to cut the Ho Chi Minh trail failed like all the others but the U.S. military were shaken to find such sophisticate weapons stockpiled in the valley. Officers still talked of winning the war, of seeing “the light at the end of the tunnel.” As it happened there was a light, that of a fast-approaching express train. 1968

4. The battle for Saigon. U.S. policy in Vietnam was based on the premise that peasants driven into the towns and cities by the carpet-bombing of the countryside would be safe. Furthermore, removed from their traditional value system they could be prepared for imposition of consumerism. This “restructuring” of society suffered a setback when, in 1968, death rained down on the urban enclaves. 1968

5. The battle for Saigon. American G.I’s often showed compassion toward the Vietcong. This sprang from a soldierly admiration for their dedication and bravery; qualities difficult to discern in the average government soldier. This VC had fought for three days with his intestines in a cooking bowl strapped onto his stomach. 1968

6. The battle for Saigon. The problem with “close” artilery support was that it was often too close. on this occasion shells called in by these troops had landed among them. The officer’s desperate message to halt the bombardment were not recieved; he had taken up refuge inside an armoured personnel carrier where his frenzied transmissions could not penetrate the metal hull. 1968

7. Quang Ngai. This was a village a few miles from My Lai. It was a routine operation - troops were on a typical ” search and destroy” mission. After finding and killing men in hiding, the women and children were rounded up. All bunkers where people could take shelter were then destroyed. Finally the troops withdrew and called in an artillery strike of the defenseless inhabitants. 1967

8.  The battle for Saigon. Refugee from US Bombing. 1968

9. The battle for Saigon. 1968

10.  In Quang Ngai Province everything that moved was a target. It had been strongly Communist for thirty years and in practice U.S. policy was genocide. Each morning, a few lucky survivors of the previous night’s carnage made it to the province hospital. The newly developed antipersonnel weapons caused a problem - their plastic darts did not show up on X-rays. 1967

ROOM Collection

ROOM Collection in a collaboration with Erik Olovsson, 2014 

When it comes to furniture, people are used to placing a object within a square space. While it is common to use a square form to arrange an object, Erik and Kyuhyung were interested in diversifying the relationship between object and space to create furniture as rooms for objects. The focus was to explore the mix-and-match quality of the ensemble in our spaces from a graphical approach.

ROOM collection is a furniture system with 25 stackable blocks and a low table with various geometric voids inspired by architecture and the objects they can hold. When all the elements of ROOM are combined it forms either a long shelf or a tall cabinet with a variety of different graphical compositions. ROOM allows each user to pick their favorite elements to build up your own composition as a shelf, a table or just as a sculpture.

Each block was inspired by specific objects, creating various shapes and sizes. The round for wine, zigzag for phones, tablets and laptops, or peaked for an open book. Each block can be a room to invite any object, the composition is unlimited.

ROOM enhances the characteristic of the individual objects and emphasizes the interactions between space and object. ROOM is made in plywood and finished with a matt lacquer.

Element: Block × 25 pieces, Table × 1 piece, Stainless mirror × 1 piece
Material : Pine plywood, pine veneer
Dimensions: H 2140, W 1170, L 300 mm
