Groundbreaking Koenig Case Study House #21 Now A Gallery For Korean DesignAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House #21 astonished people when it was first built in 1958. Photographed by Julius Schulman, it would go on to become an icon of Mid-century architecture. Impeccably restored by Michael LaFetra, the once-private house is now the Seomi International, a gallery and setting for the finest in Korean contemporary design. Below, a langorous wood settee by Bae Se Hwa and a stone sculpture by Choi Byung Hoon flank a howling wolf by (the lone Portuguese in the gallery stable) sculptor, Joana Vasconcelos.
In the kitchen, an exquisite lacquer table and stools by Kang Myung Sun.
