After writing about Store Without a Home earlier, I had to further investigate those amazing paper alarm clocks and now I’ve discovered their maker, Korean design studio Joon & Jung. Also based in the Netherlands, Joon & Jung is a conceptual product design studio based in Eindhoven. Their designs are intriguing and so very special because their work is abstract yet practical and there is an obvious story behind each and every design. Joonsoo Kim (Joon) and Jungyou Cho (Jung) met while they were students at the Design Academy Eindhoven and they’ve been working together since 2008.
“Our experiences of studying design in Korea and the Netherlands give a unique affection to concrete our philosophy and aesthetic. Especially, the influence of Dutch Design made us a storyteller with a form language and our design identity more strongly.”
What imagination! You can purchase many of the Joon & Jung creations at Store Without a Home in Amsterdam.
