Plain Cuts Limited Edition Furniture by Wonmin Park

Plain Cuts is a minimal collection of limited-edition furniture pieces created by Paris-based designer Wonmin Park on exhibit at Carpenters Workshop Gallery until April 14th, 2018. From his observations of the world and his environment, Park proposed a contemporary design with a contemplative attitude, which finds its roots in Korean tradition and philosophy.

This approach is exemplified in Plain Cuts, a series that focuses on the abstract geometry of construction and virtual lines, which produce the volume. Plain Cuts underlines Park’s investigation into the materiality of things, an exploration inspired by Park’s interest in architecture.

According to Park, “The idea of this new collection ‘Plain cuts’ is to provide a minimalist and drastic process based on the construction of aluminum sheets with patina technique. Structures are exposed to the surface and it becomes part of the work itself. Patina on Aluminum is like painting on a canvas. I try to use the character of aluminum which has its own color variation with patina and raw color itself, strength with lightweight and texture. I use these elements with a minimal form and structure, in order to maximize the quality.”
