Chorong Lamps by Joongho Choi

June 11, 2009

Korean designer Joongho Choi has created the Chorong Lamps.

Reinterpreting the ‘chong-sa-chorong’, the korean illumination device, in terms of modern thoughts. This lighting device could be hanged onto fixed metal pole, or held by hand, but most importantly when it was hanged onto a long fixed pole called ‘deung rong deh’, it would vividly show the difference between the wall and the illumination itself, building up tensions in the atmosphere. That tension could be maximized by just hanging on to the supporting pole, and I have brought along the advantageous idea from the ‘chong-sa-chorong’ which is being able to move from place to another in various directions.
