Korean designer Wonmin Park exhibited at D3 Contest at Imm Cologne Haze Series, a collection of table and chairs in light colored resin.
The Haze series by Wonmin Park Studio includes a chair, a high round table, two low round tables and a low oblong table. 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 colors created in the unique casting process that gives birth to these objects. With its combination of form, color, 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.
The resin was colored 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.
