Chinese Cursive Brush-Writing Inspires Furniture Collection

Inspired by Caoshu, Chinese cursive brush-writing, Korean designer Chulan Kwak designed a modern chair and table.  Taking inspiration from the flowing forms of calligraphy, the designer translated the lines of the characters into 3-dimensional shapes, that would then evolve into a table and a chair.


Chulan Kwak realized the free curved form by applying the technique of paper craft to woodwork.

He first created the form through 3D software and then unfolded it to extract the accurate drawing. He used this method to precisely cut thin and bendable plywood with a CNC machine, and to adhere the edges of each parts correctly in order.
