Studio HAK is a Seoul based studio led by designer Hakmin Lee, who has an ambition of creating our environment bit more humorous through everyday objects. The modern artist works in various domains such as decorative objects, art toys, illustration, and conceptual modern design. His art furniture creations are fun, inventive, and utterly out of the box. Something so humorous that it will make you give a good giggle and fall in love with the contemporary design piece.
Hakmin Lee of Studio HAK has made a series of surreal looking art furniture pieces inspired by toy figurines, cartoons, and street art. The project began when the Seoul-based modern furniture designer became fascinated by the blurred line that exists between art and design, luxury fashion and street fashion, high culture, and subculture. He, therefore, attempted to combine art furniture with toys and figures to create the sculptural ‘paw’ furniture series.
The art furniture series comprises four pieces: the paw bench, the paw stool, the paw side table, and the paw coffee table. The luxury furniture designer uses an aluminum sand casting technique to capture the details of the object’s textured surface, resulting in a very tactile appearance.
The playful contemporary art‘s design integrates oversized paws, whether serving as the feet of the bench or clutching the glass surface of the side table. In this way, the series brings an element of humor to typical chair and table products. Isn’t this collectible design series completely incredible?
