Called (Kiwa), the design is based on the roofs of traditional Korean homes.
The structure is made of birch plywood and covered in black-painted, wooden panels.
Here's some more information from Hyung Suk Cho:
‘瓦(Kiwa)’ is the design of the Korean series.
This is one of my university graduation project.
This is motivated from a traditional Korean-style house, Han-ok, which has the most beautiful outline made from tiles(Kiwa_attatched image).
The general shape of this work is designed as the tiles.
Not only the shape, but also it reinterprets the structure as a new language of furniture.
Therefore, ‘瓦(kiwa)’ becomes the bench which has a new sight of the figurative art.
kiwa type 1 is only construction. and kiwa type 2 is the final design.
Material: rugged panel & painting, birch plywood
