The 'Fake Shaker' chair
The Shakers were one of a few religious groups that formed in eighteenth-century England. They created pieces of furniture that were simple in beauty but highly durable and would function in the capacity they were designed for.
With the increase of urban farming, people are starting to engage in farming practice in the cities to produce healthy food. Urban farmer's self-sufficient life reminded Jeong of the Shaker community; this was the main starting point for the 'Fake Shaker' chair.
The 'Fake Shaker' is the restored version of the original Shaker chair for the urban farmers. It's an assembly kit of the original Shaker chair consisting of various pieces of wood randomly - rose, walnut, oak and beech. Each piece of the kit is carefully handcrafted for easy assembly and durable strength applying traditional joint technique. People can complete their own Shaker chair by different combinations of various pieces.
