    PRIMARY FUNCTION:
    Easy Chair

    INSPIRATION:
    It starts with a dot and becomes a line. The line is thin at the side but it is wide when you look in the front. It offers comfort to people with a minimum structure and the line becomes a part of the space.

    UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
    This project has included two structures that are fused into a single structure. It features flat armrests with a triangle shape which played an important role in the armrest or the front leg. The board structure serves as a seat, a backrest and rear legs. The triangle structure is also connected to the seat and the backrest so it disperse the total weight.

    PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
    Oak+ Ebony, Walnut + Ebony The furniture's forms are made in a gently carved wooden framework with triangle shaped leg. It was inlaid with ebony. All the structure is made of wood only. The chair features six pieces of wooden cogs that connects both side of the rear legs, seat, backrest inside of the structure.

    RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
    The furniture has begun by looking for a new aesthetic simplicity of the basic elements. And it was referred from the book of Emptiness(by Kenya Hara), Void(by Lee ufan), Less is more(by Mies van der Rohe) to make the basic unit that forms the object. Simple lines makes the void. The void can be produced a minimum, so even a small production can be obtained up to a spatial image. The empty part would implement the principles of communication. dots, lines and surfaces. The dot draws the line and the line becomes the surface. The minimum structure is a part of the space and a structure that holds the space of void.Simple lines makes the void. The void can be produced a minimum, so even a small production can be obtained up to a spatial image. The empty part would implement the principles of communication.

    CHALLENGE:
    After I finished my design, the hardest part was finding a good craftsman. Creating a chair that withstands the weight in a concise wooden structure was not easy to make. No one could easily say that this wood structure is possible. However I kept looking for a craftsman for few months. Finally I found two artisans who could build a wooden structure with good details. One artisan who lives in South Korea is the possessor of important intangible cultural properties and another artisan is the master craft man in Denmark. The chair could be produced by each of them and the work usually takes about three months to make the chair perfectly. For this reason, this chair has designated by one craftsman / one chair system. This is currently produced by one craftsmen in Denmark and another artisan in South Korea, so the massive production is impossible.
