A young Korean-American designer Steve Oh has just unveiled his latest collection of maple furniture during this year’s edition of New York’s ICFF. ‘A personal interpretation of classic Shaker furniture’ which is known for its ascetic simplicity and use of innovative joinery, Oh’s equally pared-down, functional ‘A Collection’ has been developed in its entirety using natural materials: solid maple wood and 100% wool felt and comprises a chair, a barstool and a table designs.

More about the collection:

 

‘I wanted to create a wood chair going back to the basics. A personal interpretation of classic Shaker furniture. The goal was to create a simple, modern, and comforting wood chair. Yet, giving a little specialness. Simple shapes. Back piercing through the seat to the back leg. The slightly angled seat and the felt offers comfort. Diverse colors of felt offers the flexibility to fit in various spaces. The A Collection offers a chair, a table, and a barstool.’
