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.

About the artist
Wonmin Park

“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. He 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.
