jiyoun kim studio debuts 'scooped' collection of monolithic stools + benches

jiyoun kim studio has debuted the scoop collection in collaboration with south korean furniture company UND, showcasing new stools and benches that literally manifest the form of scoop at their top part. the collection comes to fill the void between a stool and a sofa by providing an easy sit on posture without an overdone backrest. delicately finished in high quality natural leather, the simple pieces of furniture reveal their presence as versatile objects that can fit in any space.  jiyoun kim studio debuts 'scooped' collection of monolithic stools + benches

 

 

for the scoop collection, jiyoun kim studio has collaborated with korean furniture company UND, a subsidiary of downing company, which has a long heritage in sofa manufacturing. despite being a newly launched brand, targeting young and sensible consumers, UND inherits various experiences and know-how in sofa manufacturing and distribution, and especially in handling natural leathers. the stools and benches in the scoop collection are designed to reflect UND’s strengths. jiyoun kim studio debuts 'scooped' collection of monolithic stools + benches
