Sseuim means to use freely in Korean. It is a furniture that can assist with various postures performed in Korean saunas, and you can experience various postures such as lying down, sitting down, leaning, and sleeping according to the user's will and purpose. It provides a private space in an open space called a Korean sauna. It is a design that combines the spatial characteristics of Korean saunas and the convergent characteristics of various cultures with the elements of mountain ranges and stones, which are natural elements.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This furniture can be useful in saunas and spas. It enables the lying, sitting, and leaning posture, which is the free posture that takes place in a spa in Korea. In the heat of the sauna and spa, it gives a sense of balance in the shape of natural mountains and stones.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
There are various types of saunas in the world. Among them, people in Korean saunas rest in various positions. The chair design was carried out to enable various postures in a hot sauna and allow perfect rest. For the rest, we visited various saunas to investigate people's attitudes and asked what kind of rest would recharge themselves most through a survey. Through these results, Korea's natural mountains and rocks were brought to the sauna. The form added a function that can accommodate all postures.

CHALLENGE:
The process of capturing Korea's national identity was the most difficult, and among them, the research process of capturing Korean aesthetics as a designer was the most difficult. It was difficult to find a shape suitable for a Korean space while maintaining the backrest and leaning posture ergonomically at a comfortable angle.
