KAMKAM is a design collective located in Seoul, Korea that includes Hyunjin Seo, Jaekyoung Kim, and Jaehoon Jung. Their Dressed Up Furniture looks like playful kid furniture but for adults! The idea is to combine clothing and furniture, making the pieces soft and approachable, and also interactive using fasteners such as buttons.
Cham is a storage cabinet in which you can open and close the door using a belt-like fastener. It can also be fastened by an inner magnet, keeping it more secure. It is named after the North Pole monster Cham, a character from a Korean novel.
Also part of the Cham series is the Cham Bench, upholstered again for a soft seat. It also has storage and belt-like fastener.
Dressed Up Stool
These stools are upholstered with a special button detail that is also functional. You can unbutton the front of the stool to reveal a storage cubby inside. Adding to the theme of “dressed up” a cute pocket is sewn to the outside — maybe for a pen and paper?
