Tension Series / 2021
Donghwan Song, Hyeseung Nam

Collaboration Project with Hyeseung Nam

The Tension Series represents a remarkable furniture project that harnesses the inherent properties of tension, a characteristic rarely utilized in the production of metal furniture. By leveraging this unique attribute, stainless steel sheets are expertly assembled using rivets, resulting in furniture pieces that not only embody a minimalist aesthetic but also intuitively exemplify the concept and structural elements at play. The design philosophy behind the Tension Series revolves around the seamless integration of form and function. Through the deliberate use of tension, the furniture pieces achieve a harmonious balance between visual appeal and structural integrity. The minimalistic shapes employed in the series not only showcase the intrinsic beauty of the materials but also communicate the underlying concept of tension as a driving force in the creation of the furniture.

This project highlights the ingenuity and creativity in utilizing unconventional manufacturing techniques to produce furniture pieces that transcend traditional design boundaries. The Tension Series stands as a testament to the innovative approach of integrating unique material properties into the realm of furniture design, resulting in visually striking and structurally robust pieces that resonate with contemporary aesthetics. By reimagining the application of tension in the production of metal furniture, the Tension Series exemplifies the pursuit of design excellence and pushes the boundaries of what is conventionally considered possible. These meticulously crafted pieces serve as a testament to the skill and artistry of the creators, embodying a seamless blend of form, function, and structural innovation.
