Stud Chair by Hyung Suk Cho


Korean designer Hyung Suk Cho has designed a chair made of two curved wooden shells joined together with circular studs.

Called Stud, the wooden chair is supported by three steel legs.

Hyung Suk Cho has also created a matching table, with the same wooden component folded down over four steel legs.

Here's some more infomration from the designer:

The "Stud chair & table" is bending wood chair and table. The "Stud" means a small button like earrings. The "Stud chair & table" looks like wearing four small earrings! :) I want to design the chair composed by only one module.

The "Stud chair & table" solves this problem. Its back, sitting plate of chair and table are only one bending module.

So, it is made easily and its cost is cheaper than 2 modules or 3 modules design.

    disgraceful gimmick of the Eames’ chair..

  • tdt

    renewal of Eames’ character

  • Would be nicer if it can flex at the joint.

  • I really love the clean look and the idea, but I’m a little concerned about the stability. Can these hold good sized people? Or, better yet, can these comfortably hold bigger people?

  • Am I the only one who sees a sort of Eames-Frankenstein?

  • i guess you can’t go wrong quoting eames as a starting point :-)

    I am always surprised when there is no mention that these are just renderings,,,

    in the real world, this will look different, i hoped that at least we’d be informed when presented with nicely done renderings that confuse virtuality with reality.

    personnally, i would be in favor of no renderings, i prefer photos of real design.

    just my 2 cents

  • There is some Jean Prouvé in this Stud Chair. Very nice

    These are not renders.
