Container 5-1 is a design studio composed of three designers in a family: a father, a daughter and her husband. It creates what we want to use in our daily lives by combining various materials and forms. Its projects include a wide variety of objects from a coaster for an individual to a dining table for a group of members. The studio also carries out custom design projects for a specific customer’s need where it is involved in furniture and interior styling.
The first project of Container 5-1 is the Octagonal series that includes dining table, cabinet, and cupboard. Octagonal series was developed in collaboration with a potter Ji Seung Min to showcase his tableware. Container 5-1 focuses on the functionality of practical furniture while reinterpreting the lines from Korean traditional objects and its elegance in delicate details.
