Designers Hyunyoung Cho
Korean Traditional Wood furniture that uses the grains of wood and underlines its sheer beauty.
As there are clear annual rings in Korean wood thanks to its distinct four seasons, we may feel the beauty of tree rings made by nature as it is. Hyunyoung Cho’s seoan (Traditional writing table), a low table used for writing or reading is made with dead zelkova wood of at least 400 years old. The aesthetic beauty of Korean traditional furniture is summarized in its frugal and graceful figure. His table is thinly finished with natural lacquer without hiding the grains. Cho has pursued its graceful beauty, focusing primarily on the beauty of naturally shaped wood grains, keeping away from any artificial decoration.
