Contemporary Korean Craft Furniture by Kobeomsuk
We are firm believers of quality over quantity, surrounding ourselves with things that make an emotional connection and enhance our lives. These could be objects of exceptional beauty or sentimental value, or perhaps because they are unfailingly efficient in what they do. For Ko Beomsuk, founder of Kobeomsuk Furniture, it is furniture that tells the story of nature, conveyed through the medium of wood.
The Kobeomsuk collection includes cabinets, tables and chairs made from solid walnut or oak, handcrafted using artisanal techniques to showcase the beauty of wood. The Floating Top series of tables and chairs, for instance, are designed to expose and emphasise the intricate hand-carved joints, whilst the Live Edge series of cabinets feature the natural edge of the slab as an integral part of the design. The overall aesthetic is restrained and contemplative, perfect for living life at the speed of nature.
For furniture of exceptional quality hand crafted in wood look no further than the Waves Bar Cabinet from Milla&Milli, the Colossus Console from Agrippa and the Gaulino Easy Chair from BD Barcelona Design.
We love the Air Table Light from LZF, made from natural wood veneer in a particularly expressive shape. The Linea D Floor Light from Nomon is made of solid walnut and looks super sleek. For a more minimalist, Scandinavian style display, a cluster of Terho Pendants from Mater would work wonders.
For beautifully crafted accessories in wood try the Vertigo Wall Hanger from
Nomon, the Jackson Coat Stand from Dare and the Cricket Hanger with Mirror from Woak.
