South Korean designer Jongho Park's latest project is this 'Costume Collection' of furniture pieces.
Playing with archetypes and familiar furniture forms, Jongho's series of seating and lighting is also not quite what it seems.
"People enjoy abundance and safety from familiarity. But, the familiarity feeling also gives us the monotonous feeling and boredom at the same time." Jongho explains.
So to combat this, Jongho has utilised unexpected materials for the chairs, lamp and small stools; the display stand of the chair, and the stool is manufactured in iron, but made to look like wood.
Fabric patterns and wood grain patterns, made using lasers, trick the eye here.
We do like a nice surprise...
