the designer makes use of the features of natural wood in effectively describing and maximizing the aesthetic value of the wormhole — the plasticity of the hole is integrated into the natural beauty of the material. ‘to that end, the plasticity and structural characteristics of the wood were identified and the formative expression technique which promotes the aesthetic value of the wormhole was evaluated’, says jung-hoon. ‘moreover, a simple aesthetic value which is rather submerged into our daily life than showing its splendor as well as is always visible and usable was pursued.’
