“In my designs, I want objects to speak for themselves. To be beautiful, attractive and engage with their surroundings. My work embraces simplicity, purity, and subtlety. People who experience my design have the space to explore their own sensations and emotions,” says Wonmin Park.
He was born in 1982 in Seoul, South Korea, and is a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven. After working with a series of prestigious design companies in the Netherlands, he established Studio Wonmin Park, based in Eindhoven, in 2011. He has also established a production facility in Rotterdam and a creative studio in Paris.
To maximize the visual appeal of his pieces, Park uses resin and metal. The use of these chosen materials produces a surreal, dream-like quality reminiscent of seeing something without fixed contours, bound together by light and air. Park’s furniture acts like sculpture that demands to be looked at and visually appreciated.
His designs are considered as both practical commodity and fine art. Wonmin has exhibited his work at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea and Musée des Arts Décoratif, Paris.
