Square in Boots Furniture Collection by Jongho Park
“Square in Boots” is a collection of wooden furniture designed by Jongho Park, which includes two stools and one table. The furniture units have distinctive leg design which has a different colored toe which mimics a hoof of an animal. In designer’s words, “Funny and friendly the ‘Square in Boots’ series looks as if square tables are wearing boots in their legs to walk, and has two stools and one table.
Wood and metal, which have different character, were used, harmonized into one piece of furniture, and made into a neat and easy shape through the contrast of material and color. Metal’s tenderness of lines and wood’s solidness of side are reflected to look like bent iron metal is hugging a tree. The side where people make contact is made of wood, and the line and structure that support the side is metal. The ‘Square in Boots’ series has a simple square shape that is created during the process of creating space called furniture, by making the sides folding lines and by sides meeting sides.”
