The stiff material that composes this set of wireframe furniture might have made the individual pieces look sharp; however, designer Jihye Choi managed to make the chair, the table and the light look rather voluptuous. The metal was cast in series of slender bars with generous gaps between them, and together they suggest weightless volumes of backrests, armrests and sturdy stands.

Finished in black, the metal is striking against brightly coloured and well-lit surroundings, asserting a presence that's more substantial than the actual mass of the three objects. Intricate rhythms arise from the overlapped look of the wireframe furniture's skeletons, making the Wave Collection quite an energetic one. To complement the industrial structures of the armchair, the side table and the floor lamp, wooden accents and plushy cushions are integrated for a comfy and contemporary style.
