Who among us hasn’t, at one point or another, hunkered down inside and stared out through a crystal-clear pane, letting the mind wander and daydreams flutter through and stay a while? 
Seoul-born, Stockholm-based designer Mars HwaSung Yoo used imagination and memories as the starting point for a new chair he was working on, which led him to the idea of ancient window forms. 
“They have a sense of place, invite us to sit, and play a variety of roles in their long history as architectural elements,” Yoo tells Co.Design. “After I had the concept, all parts of the window had to be redefined to support the function of a chair; it didn’t have to be an exact replica.” Instead, he focused on bringing this aged craft into the present with a handmade aesthetic.
