The Twisted Chair
Designer Baek-Ki Kim’s take on the simple art of seating is a bit twisted. The Twisted Twisted stool appears to have been distorted by a mammoth force, only to create a functional seat. The minimal lines show how gravity can contort and reshape, yet maintain a graceful elegance. One-off editions are made from spray molded ABS plastic, with carbon fiber editions made to order.
Several shapes and heights are available to fit each space. The play of light off the curvatures is also a work of art that continues to develop different times of the day as the sun moves. If you actually used the stool for a seat, then you may find yourself contorting a bit as you conform. Kim’s artful approach is characteristic of all his designs. More of his work is available at the website, and inquires are welcome.
