For the Young Sam Kim Korean Student Center at Binghamton University we created a furniture series that includes a table, benches in multiple sizes, and a screen module.

The ideal Korean house sits facing a river, with mountains at its back. For students who are away from home, we built all three.

Completed in collaboration with artist Yoon Hyup.

The table refers to the wood construction of a traditional Korean home. The double layered top refers to wood beams that support a house’s roof, while the arrangement of multiple legs evokes sliding partitions that separate rooms.

Bench axonometric

The benches create a visual rhythm evoking waves in a river. The largest bench seats four to five people and is an interpretation of the traditional “Pyung Sang.”

Screen axonometric

Rolling partitions stand in for mountains. The panels provide a visual barrier for privacy, or can be arranged as a backdrop during lectures and events.
