The Haze series by Wonmin Park Studio includes a chair, a high round table, two low round tables and a low oblong table.

The resin was coloured with pigment and cast in separate moulds before being joined together. The translucent nature of the resin allows the colour of each element to show through along the joins.

The pieces will be shown at Design Days Dubai next week and at the Salone del Mobile in Milan next month.

Although currently only available as one-offs, Park plans to expand the series with a cabinet and more chairs and tables.

Here's some more information from the designer:


Haze series

Basic geometric shapes seem to define Wonmin Park's Haze Series. The entire object gives the impression that it unveils itself in front of us through the opaqueness of its parts. But our perception deceives us when we think it begins and ends there. Each Haze object carries within it a dissymmetry of form hidden from sight. A dissymmetry of form that is balanced out by the colours created in the unique casting process that gives birth to these objects.

With its combination of form, colour, opaqueness and texture the Haze series is a balance of rationality and the self in a life where the former often dominates to the detriment of the latter. Wonmin Park's Haze series perfectly positions itself between the substantiality and insubstantiality of life.

    Pretty! But pretty uncomfortable too.

      And pretty heavy too.

    They have to be the most toxic furniture ever. The heat in Dubai will vaporize the epoxy. I feel like getting asthma just from looking at it.

  • ilana

    I wonder whether the epoxy is vegetable-based.

    James, you beat me to it! There’s something quite ethereal about these pieces.

    Wow, beautiful colour and poetry. I love this!
