bomi park: afterimage furniture

south korean designer bomi park has created a collection of furniture pieces titled ‘afterimage’ shown at DMY berlin 2012. the collection references optical illusions and, of course, its namesake with a controlled chaos of wire mesh, so that the designs seem to shimmer like a mirage. the objects change and transform as they are approached from different angles, conjuring up the process of memory and the mind’s relationship to a visual image.
