Playfully formed to contrast the organic nature of the specimen, the holders were designed to work as mini stand alone sculptures when deprived of their green companions.

Material: Powder-coated steel

Spring Collection 2017

In contrast to the exploration and curiosity of forms we had of making with Hot Wire Extensions, this a collection creating the most simple and basic structure using the process. Aimed for efficiency we used only straight lines and simple shapes that almost resembles scaffolding or basic wood work. However, when the object is finally solidified the simplest structure high-lights the smooth joints that the process creates in a very subtle way. Still containing the unique aesthetic of the process the objects connects with the audience through the friendly and familiar feeling of the objects which are the most basic archetypes of furniture.

Grid Bench 2016 66 x 100 x 50 cm

Embracing the knowledge we have gained through the previous collection. We aimed this collection to have the playfulness of the random structure we have made before and the strict straight lines of the grid. The far off elements when designing and shaping an object comes together effortlessly and beautifully. The collection consists of three pieces highlighting the elements in each design

Wave Stool / Wave light 21 x 40 x 57 cm / 96 x 53 x 147 cm 2017

This is a playful series that contains geometric and controlled lines that can be created through a process. This collection, using curved wave lines and straight lines, shows you the imaginative figures that wires can easily make. This fun, but controlled form is made possible by our skilled craftsmanship of the process.

12 Stools ‘12 - Hot Wire Extensions’ is a series of twelve stools exploring the structural potential of this process, showcasing the strength of the material and the flexibility of the process. Throughout its development, various methods and techniques of using the wire were discovered and successively refined. Each stool demonstrates a different approach, emphasising a particular technique of using the wire and composite

Hot Wire Extensions explores alternative processes of making and displays new potentials in industrial production by transforming line structures into solid bodies. The innovative manufacturing process reuses the waste nylon powder of SLS 3D printing. The process starts by building a shape from thin wire made from nichrome – an alloy of nickel, chromium and other metals – that fits within the dimensions of a cuboid container.

The wire form is placed inside the box, which is filled with a mixture of pure silica sand and leftover nylon powder collected as waste from selective laser sintering (SLS) – a form of 3D printing. The sand acts on one side as a filler material, by preventing the nylon powder from dripping off the wire, on the other side, it conducts and distributes the heat further away.

The Pleats Chair is an aluminium chair that is lightweight and strong with a pleated structure. Corrugated structure is widely used in an architecture and a fashion in terms of the strong structure and the beautiful aesthetics.The Pleats Chair highlights both aspects with a carefully designed pleats pattern.

User inserted imageUser inserted image

My first approach to this project was to develop a strong yet lightweight chair. Aluminium is not only a good material for it’s rigidity and lightness but also recycling. The energy to recycle the aluminum only requires 5% energy of producing the new aluminum. The recycled aluminium generally can save significant amount of the cost over the production of new aluminium, even after the cost of collection, separation and recycling are taken into account.

In order to achieve an elegant aesthetic, a custom-made two-part mold was designed with a pattern of the pleats. These pleats are pressed on to the aluminum sheets with a strong pressure to make the body of the Pleats Chair.

The profile of the cross section continuous from the backrest to the seat smoothly with legs by sharing same radius. As a result, the thin shell of the body can stay rigid to seat on while maintaining a delicate aesthetic and a lightweight. The embossed pattern and the profile of the chair brings a unique character to the Pleated Chair.

old friend lighting

I designed ‘Old friend lighting’ for my friend. I have an old friend from elementary school. I gave him gifts when he has a big event such as joining the army. In this time, my friend was getting married. So I made this light for him.

This lighting is story about two people who have different personality but similar. So this lighting also was constructed two geometry that is similar but different. One is edged, other thing is round. And they blend in with each other and make shiny light. Our lives and friendship were like this, and I hope my friend also would be harmonized with his wife in their married life.

Naver asked us to new design the furnitures at their training institure where the existing furnitures did not function well in the educational environment. We started looking at the desk and made a series of furnitures to make the education easy and smooth. Campus One is the outcome, office furniture collection for the Naver traning institute in Chuncheon.

The institute opened in 2014, it was designed in the light of architectural styles and interiors and the study on usability was continued based on an educational program. It was intended to refine previous inconveniences and make furniture that has the distinctive features of NAVER. As a project manager, I was in charge of whole process from concept development to design and production.
