Woojai Lee | Alchemist’s Furniture
Woojai Lee didn’t look at paper, but at papers; newspapers. As a matter of fact, these daily massively printed supports of information consist of one of the main source of paper wastes. As an alchemist would do it, Lee tried to bring back the collected overprints to their rough material essence : the pulp. Playing with techniques and applications, he started to reform that raw matter in arborescent furnitures, displaying marbling effects close to the ones of stones.
The final pieces combine both the soft touch of paper and the rough strength of stone. Just like an alchemist would, WooJai aims to reduce the matter to its most basics elements in order to make it reborn.
