Bae Se Hwa, Korea, 2015.

"Steam 25" lounge chair in steam-bent walnut. This example produced in 2019. #3 from the edition of 6 + 2 APs.

Bae Se Hwa has refined and perfected a steam-bending technique that allows him to create works of exceptional scale. Starting with a geometric diagram, Se Hwa individually bends hundreds of thin slices of walnut wood over a structured frame. Through this repetitive process, Se Hwa is able to create unexpected silhouettes with subtle curves and elegant line formations.
