    Wonmin Park: Haze Series

Pastel-coloured resin makes for exceptionally beautiful furniture

Posted by James Cartwright,

We came across South Korean designer Wonmin Park tucked away in a basement of the Spazio Rossana Orlandi – just below the space in which Konstfack were exhibiting – but don’t be fooled, the quality of this man’s work can’t be contained below ground. Wonmin is a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven and since 2011 has presided over his own studio creating unique products and furnishings, all notable for their ethereal beauty (not a word you’d normally associate with an object designed to cradle your backside).

His recent Haze series stood out among many hundreds of furniture designers exhibiting in Milan for its simple, elegant use of materials and unique sense of aesthetic identity. Wonmin’s collection of pastel-coloured resin furniture looks like nothing else we’ve ever seen, at once appearing completely insubstantial yet entirely solid. Haze is form meets function at its absolute best.
