marking his first solo work, seoul-based designer seungjoon song presents the ‘sienna’ stool collection that has been created to capture the color of the earth. in reference to notions of time and the formation of the world that surrounds us, the objects take on a simple form and a warm, oxidized hue to evoke the idea of something altogether natural.

to achieve the desired appearance, song formed the simple pieces from metal blocks, which he then applied two different finishes onto. the smooth section of the stool is created using lacquer paint, which coats the surface in a polished brown shade. however, the matte part of the stool is left to oxidize over time from natural factors such as humidity and wind, offering a rougher aesthetic that provides a subtle contrast with the glossy lacquer.

by utilizing these two different methods of finishes, song aims to imply the concept of the time it has taken to form the earth. the combination of the polished surface of the human-finished lacquer and the raw, abstract surface of the natural-finished oxidation forms a quiet change and subtle contrast of the reddish brown monochromatic color, resulting in a simple, yet richly designed object.
