Gaps between elements make the top look like it is suspended above the rest of the table
The designer utilised shadow gaps between the top of the table and the seat of the chair and bench to create the optical illusion of these elements appearing to hover in the air.
This effect was created by reinforcements that are receded beneath the top and seats, and are only visible from beneath each piece.
Simple forms allow the wood grain and joinery to decorate the pieces
The collection celebrates wood as a material through its planar, linear shapes that display the grain of the timber, as well as in the joinery that provides an element of decoration.
“The furniture is a straight and simple, but we wanted to reveal the essence of handicraft by adding wood joint details to the structural connections,” said Ko. “Sliding dovetails as well as mortise and tenon joints can be found on various parts of the furniture.”
