Oriental designers think differently and therefore create very unusual things. The Korean designer Seung-Yong Song described his philosophy of multifunctionality by creating the Objets collection. All parts are doubled as ladders, drying racks, shelves or lamps. A clothesline on a rocking chair is Objet E, which can move back and forth to make it easier for hanging clothes to dry. Objet O is a chair hidden in a giant paper lampshade that can be folded down to create a private den. A ladder is the backrest for the chair named Objet B, but it can also be used as a shelf like the similar Objet A. The designer says that when things are stripped of their own unique functions, we might be concerned about the uses of those objects. These are not just pieces of furniture, but also multifunctional installations.
