It is as a sculptor that the Korean Choi Byung-hoon approaches furniture. His sleek organic forms are inspired by the dolmens at the sites of Gochang, Hwasun and Ganghwa in the south of the Korean peninsula. He uses simple materials such as wood or stone. His approach refers to Taoist philosophy and religion in search of harmony between humanity and nature.
