Designer: Peter Yong Ra
NaMu is a minimal design created by Minneapolis College of Art and Design graduate Peter Yong Ra. Through design, Ra strives to encounter awareness and sensitivity and aspire to communicate feelings of empathy by designing from a familiar story or an idea.
NaMu was designed to embody family valuables and the sensibilities rewarded from them. On a daily basis everyday objects are inherited and passed down from one generation to another to the family heirlooms. The NaMu chair represents the enduring moments that are formed with these meaningful treasures. The word Namu, meaning ‘tree’ in Korean, celebrates the importance of family roots and the stories found within them.
