Studio Woojai - Alchemist's Side Table
107RIVOLI invites COLLECTIBLE to create an environment representative of the young, contemporary design scene.
Studio Woojai is a Korean-New Zealander designer based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. He likes to work with different qualities of materials, experimenting to find and apply them in different ways. The Alchemist's Furniture is series of furniture which explores the transformation of a material into another element through the application and the technique. Paper is sculpted into branch like structures which has the aesthetics of a marbled stone, while having the tactility of both rough stone and soft paper. Just like an alchemist would, a lifeless material from old newspapers have been given a new life as a furniture of another element.
