Buildings are such existences that influences product or furniture designs. Orientalism was designed with minimal detail and two dimensional formative lines. A Kyung-Sang (one of small korean table) and the tip of eaves of Korean traditional temple motifs gave a compromising line. From the inspiration of traditional architecture feature, Cheom is re-interpreted into modern shape of design.

Among various type of pieces of furniture, shelf is considered as decorative object in the domestic environment as we as functional object to store books and daily objects. This feature is similar to the buildings from the past to modern days because each buildings has their own purpose uses, not only habitat. I am always inspired when I seek and categorise these similarities between architecture and product, tradition and modern, aesthetic and function. Those factors interact closely. Cheom is a result of study of relationship between architecture and furniture. It presents shared meaning of purpose of buildings and storages with shared structure that we can notice.
