The Kiwa Series by Cho Hyung Suk makes extensive use of tiles known as 'Kiwa' to create a bright and porous piece of furniture that takes advantage of its surrounding light sources to create intricate patterns with its shadow. It also comes in a myriad of different colors, which further advances its aesthetic effect.
Implications - Contemporary designs nowadays are more than just modern. Talented artists worldwide have injected a bit of their cultural concepts into original works that bring a whole new different aesthetic to the table. The combination of the new world with the traditions of the old brings nostalgia and sentiment into a home without seeming too old-fashioned for consumers. Businesses should see opportunities in creating products or marketing with a "moderntique" look.
