Taisan Bench 2.0
The Taisan Bench is the first piece in the street furniture range and aims to bring the discourse of circular economy to everyday life, and eventually, to create a touch point to encourage cooperative contribution and efforts towards sustainability. The bench takes its inspiration from Korea's mountainous terrain and Sumukhwa, traditional ink wash painting. The symbol was derived from the collection of small pieces of dust plastic to create a huge mountain. The scenery of Bukhansan Mountain was captured from the brush strokes depicted in the paintings, and reinterpreted as the gradient grayscale layers and granolithic sheet on the top.
