FICT design studio Reimagines Uses for Mother of Pearl

South Korea-based FICT design studio, where FICT stands for ‘From Craft to industry’, focuses on using traditional elements and experimental processes to create modern objects. Their latest project, Nacreplus, brings a modern approach to jagae, which is a traditional Korean lacquering technique that uses mother of pearl.

The project consists of terrazzo-like trays and coasters with chips of mother of pearl suspended within resin where it creates reflections off of its iridescent surfaces. The pieces are then finished with bands of gold-plated brass or stainless steel around the edges.
