Slice Series by Jeong Ho Ko & Hyongho Park

Slice Series is a minimalist collection of metallic sculptures created by Seoul-based designer Jeong Ho Ko in collaboration with Hyongho Park. Balancing between tension and relaxation, we lead to various senses. Tension causes us to be sensitive, making us to focus on the surrounding environment, causing our senses to become clearer. At the same time, relaxation makes it possible to comfortably accept this clear senses. Slice series is a project that shows the balance of tension and relaxation in form. By cutting geometric objects, sharp edges and unstable shapes are formed, creating tension from the viewers. Also, the tension is heightened by finishing. Outer sides are rough and the sliced surfaces are polished to show how sharply it is cut and give clear contrast between two different finishes. However, it is designed to have no problem in function. So when users are using slice series, they are relaxed from the tension, making them feel the ‘balance’ they did not feel before.
