Launched by Eujung Jang in 2013, The Volon started out of a small atelier in Seoul, where today, Jang and her team continue to conceptualize and handcraft each piece. With a background in interiors, she was drawn to strong architectural shapes and metal ornamentation, specifically those created by Gio Ponti. "I get so much inspiration from his lighting," Jang explains. The name Volon comes from a philosophical phrase by Jean-Jacques Rousseau: le volonte de tous, which translates to ‘the will of all.’
