How cool is this? At plain sight, this furniture looks like 2D line drawings, but, they come to life, thanks to the ingenuity of South Korean designer Jinil Park.
By taking steel interspersed wires, Park’s ‘Drawing Series’ of roughly drawn furniture, jumps from the page, to create two chairs, a table + a lamp. ”The key point of my work is the moments where the line is distorted,” said Jinil Park. “They express the designer’s feeling, status, + emotion.”
Wires of different thicknesses were hammered by Park to distort the lines, recreating variations in the lines drawn with a pen. Park then intersected the wires + welded them together, until a strong enough structure was achieved.
I love the juxtaposition at play here. The furniture’s simple yet complex construction, especially the chairs, with the ability to hold a person’s weight, would just make me want to touch one + stare at it for hours.
