Bomi Park's ethereal furniture

 Bomi Park is a designer from South Korea and has presented a series of furniture called 'Afterimage'. As objects, the pieces are made out of steel wire, but what really 'makes' the objects is the negative space in between the solid material. I think the designer has succeeded in showing how something material can be turned into something with immaterial qualities, and there it lines up well with some of Philippe Starck's (for example the Louis Ghost chair) and Tokujin Yoshioka's work.
