This project is about finding a way to convey the culture and value of Jeonju on the ONN Brand. We aim to Use a part of the product that comes out from the process of producing a product and change its use into an actual product that is more friendly to the user. The first step of the project was to think of Jeonju on the desk under the theme ONN the desk. Like the business cards used to represent themselves among stationery/office items, we want to begin development with a business card arrangement consisting of the skills and material of the human resources that represent Jeonju.
Yu Bae-geun is the only Hanji-bal Craftsmen in Korea, and has been making the Hanji-bal used to float traditional Korean paper for a long time. A single Hanji-bal can be a completed product by hanging on for a full month. It is made by hand by repeating the process of weaving bamboo into thread, which is less than 1mm thick. The Hanji-bal, which is made like this, is completed by cutting out bamboo sticks at both ends. Although the end is originally abandoned, the bamboo shoots, which are different from each other, depict a unique shape. To save this shape, the bamboo was cut a little longer than before, and the business card is put between its rolled teeth, as if it were kept by rolling the Hanji-bal.
This product was produced by collaboration between No. 31 Jeollabuk-do Intangible Cultural Property Hanji-baljang (Hanji Frame Making) and Auroi's designer Kisang Gio.
