2020 / Bench
BEAM is a bench that embraces the philosophy of imperfection and re-evaluates material by revealing the hidden beauty using traditional techniques. Cracks on pine beams occur randomly and are usually treated as an unpleasant problem. In contrast, I appreciate the natural phenomenon that shows confrontation against nature. After burning and brushing, charcoal gradient remains on the tactile wooden surface. Vivid color inks are applied to emphasize the implicit mystery and energy hidden in nature.
