    simple, pure, elegant. I like!

  • edward

    Ingenious! Though can’t think of a use for them. They seem to fit in better with an ideology than design theme.

  • It’s compact, it’s simple, it’s util. I like it.

  • Wonderful, beautiful work John & Won Hee! Congratulations on the show!

  • nice touch, nice looking, nice design, nice function, nice!

  • Elsa.B

    Wonderful, very elegant and ingenious wooden furniture, I wan’t it.

  • Brennan

    Holy Shit Balls, I love this so much…. Design boner much?

  • JJ

    The threaded legs make this impractical…encourage experimentation by facilitating building and taking apart.

  • Brilliant! Shaker influence is always welcomed.

  • mil

    Very complicated and funtionless to be Shaker?

  • B

    it’s like permanent IKEA it would drive me mad

  • Nice studio, I find interesting flow kitchen.

  • timothy

    It looks well crafted, however it seems a bit ironic that it’s photographed in such a large living space, when it seems intended for a much smaller one.

  • j
