They say you can tell a lot about a person from what they scribble and doodle.
Despite being the least spatially aware person on the planet I always doodle 3D boxes and cubes!
I wonder what they would have to say about the scribbles of designer Jinil Park!
Jinil Park from Seoul, South Korea, has created a range of scribble furniture comprising of 2 chairs, 2 lamps and a table
At first glance they appear to be simple 2-D doodles drawn in fine line.But upon closer inspection, Jinil's creations reveal themselves to be fully functioning life-sized furniture.The Korean designer's range, dubbed 'Drawing Furniture', is made from intersecting steel wires and has the appearance of a flat rough sketch.
I hardly have the words for how much I LOVE these...
'The concept is making a 2D drawing into a 3D object,' Jinil, 25, explains. The key point of his work is 'the moments where the line is distorted,' says the Seoul-based artist.'They express the designer’s feeling, status, and emotion.'
Beginning by drawing various pieces of furniture with intersecting lines, the designer selected favourites to recreate in real life. Jinil then hammered wires of different thicknesses to imitate the lines drawn with a pen.
He intersected and welded the wire together until the structure was strong enough to use as one would a normal piece of furniture.'I created the conjunction of these thin wires that eventually hold the human weight while a single wire cannot,'
Born in Incheon, South Korea, the artist went to college in Hongik University, Seoul, where he studied metal craft design.
The series is now being exhibited at a design fair in Cologne, Germany. He will decide the price of the pieces when the fair finishes at the end of January. 'People can buy it if they are interested by contacting me directly,' says Jinil.
If I had the money, I would be snapping that chair up in a heartbeat!
