A Piece of Nature

Minyeol Cho – A Piece of Nature

I was captivated by the Swiss lifestyle of embracing nature and enjoying outdoor experiences. Inspired by the beauty of people conversing and dining outdoors under clear skies, I conceived the idea of an outdoor tableware set to evoke nature and facilitate conversations. My design focused on maintaining a natural aesthetic, using materials that foster a connection with nature. I aimed for a simple design that preserves the integrity of the wood while highlighting its inherent beauty. The tableware set’s interior is coated with a natural dye from lacquer trees, offering waterproofing and eco-friendly production. This design allows users to appreciate the characteristics, aesthetics and practicality of the material.
