Up until the ‘Steam 20′ bench, Bae Sehwa’s steamed bentwood furniture has had a rib-like structure that is reminiscent of a ship’s hull both in construction and shape. Steam 20 is a larger, more sculptural work, a departure from the vessel form with ribs that are closer together, except where they part to form sinuous water-like waves.

A showcase for the flexibility and beauty of wood, Steam 20′s organic curves are made to accommodate the natural curves of the human body.
