HWIM Collection: Chair&Stool
"HWIM Collection" is designed from a single steel plate through the conventional bending technique to accommodate various typology of furniture. The word "Hwim" means "bent" in Korean. The language becomes literal and physical within the form. The concept is to maximize the material use of the steel plate in a minimal way. Each steel plate becomes a chair and a stool.
The steel plate is being laser-cut to extract unnecessary parts to minimize its weight and then bent into the shape of a chair and a stool. The surface is powder-coated in a variety of colors to blend in an indoor/outdoor weather-resistant environment.
HWIM chair is a chair/one-sided armchair depends on the sitting postures. Forward sitting posture and sideward sitting posture. As all the sitting position varies from one another, HWIM chair insinuates users to seek their own comfortable sitting postures, and it takes its simple line to its limits without any welding.
HWIM stool is a rotatable stool that could be utilized as an indoor/outdoor side table or stool. Rotating the stool allows having dual heights to accommodate sitting and storing items.
