Designers Honggu Park

Honggu Park(b.1966) is a furniture artisan who has been persistently working with wood for over 30 years. Beaten and worn timber is reborn as wooden furniture and sculptural artwork through Park’s hands. He creates furniture and series of objet d'art with his distinctive carbonization technique. Park’s carbonization technique not only protects the timber by burning it, but also creates a beautiful pattern on the surface which is the artist’s distinct creative technique. The dark, black color is realized by its texture rather than the color itself. The rough yet polished organic shape, the resonance of black color engraved by carbonization lives in harmony with the breath of the living wood and the artist’s emotion that repetitively abandons and empties.
