South Korean artist Jae Hyo Lee is a real master when it comes to wood and metal manipulation. And, as you will see in this article, he can turn almost any piece of wood into a work of art. If you go ahead and check out his website, you will notice that this brilliant artist is skilled in more than just wood mastery. He is able to make art out of almost any material including metal and even leaves.
Preserve, re-purpose and recycle.
The main purpose of his work is to preserve as much as he can of the natural state of the materials. And through this he manages to make them the main and only stars of the show. He bends, twists and arranges the pieces in such a way that make their natural beauty come through and that his influence stays limited. And I have to commend him for this healthy and positive perspective, especially during a period when we have to take a much better look at our usage of natural resources. Another big plus of his work is that he mostly uses recycled materials, making his furniture even more friendly towards the environment.
For this article, I have purposely chosen to talk about Lee’s wood furniture pieces. This mainly because I have a real affinity for wood furniture, as you may have noticed so far from the articles. But also because these pieces have a double purpose inside your home. They are designed in a gorgeous way that makes them look like pieces of art. But they are also very practical and can be simply used as furniture.
His designs are both simple and intricate at the same time, making them a perfect fit for any style of home. From a cozy country style house to an elegant establishment filled with designer pieces and anything in between. I can assure you that if you like these pieces, then you can find a place for them inside your home.
And for the purpose of being fair to both the designer and my readers, I have selected two types of pieces. You will notice furniture that can be used in a practical way, without neglecting aesthetics. But there are also pieces with the simple purpose of beautifying your home by existing in it. And you can notice these works of art in the continuation of this article.
A unique view
Another big positive when it comes to this concept is the gorgeous three-dimensional perspective that all the pieces give out. This adds a more unique feel and an interesting depth to them. Therefore, these pieces have a catchy look, a pleasant aesthetic and they also challenge your perspective a bit.
I leave you now with a video of the artist himself talking about and describing a bit of his work and process. He talks a bit about inspiration and how it always leads him to these stunning and intricate works:
