The concept behind the Drawing Series, says Park, was created by accident when he began sketching out ideas for a new project in his notebook. He became intrigued by each individual pen stroke and how the lines put together created an object. Park chose five of his sketches–two chairs, two lamps, and a table—to transform into their physical forms.

“The key point of my work is that moment where the line is distorted,” says Park. “They express the designer’s feeling, status, and emotion.” Constructed from intersecting hammered wires of irregular thicknesses, Park spot-welded the metal wires together to create a strong enough frames that would support the weight of a person. He also photographed each piece against a bright white background to minimize shadows and emphasize the hand-drawn sketchy illusion.
