'Plain Cuts', a new furniture collection from Korean designer Wonmin Park, is simple at first glance but increasingly complex upon further examination. The aluminum furniture consists of little more than sharp-edged rectangles bisected by struts, but the aluminum itself is patinated, giving it a richly textured exterior that is soothing and captivating to the eye.
The furnishings in the Plain Cuts collection include a bench, a chair, a dining table, a coffee table, and light fixtures, all of which have been finished with the same patinated aluminum. Each of these pieces alternates between a light metal hue that's typical of the material and a far darker shade, which is especially captivating because of how it hides the patina.
