Description/

Yunhwan Kim’s latest addition to his popular Unintended Series is a set of stools. Created in both carved wood and cast aluminum, the stools represent Kim’s first exploration of metal work. His hands-on approach and solitary studio practice is much like the designers associated with the American Craft Movement that took place in the second part of the twentieth century. The addition of metal work and high end materials places Kim’s latest work firmly in the contemporary realm.

Kim’s furniture began as series of small objects – trays, vessels, bowls – that had, what he calls, “unintended shapes.” Scrutinizing these objects, Kim found that by connecting them, reversing them to expose dips and arcs, and modifying the shapes, the works unfolded, taking on a life of their own. Eventually, having connected more than 40 elements into one large abstract piece, the curve and shape of a cabinet door emerged and the independent objects grew naturally into Kim’s unique sculptural furniture.

Irregular, improvisational and organic, Kim’s forms vaguely reflect the silhouette of spilled water.  There is a fluid, topographic quality defined by large contoured shapes which are interconnected by tributary or branch-like forms.
