Kovy is designed to characterize simplicity and details from metal frames. The dining chair of the series of Kovy produced by the studio of Joongho Choi is composed of materials to discolor easily for presenting the distinctive character. The designers chose to leave welding marks as well as an unfinished surface in order to create a more industrial aesthetic.
Utilization of metal frame under the process of maximizing each special character is influenced on establishing a sense of stability. The way for sustaining the feel of raw materials with a welding mark and coarse treatment is also harmonized with the furniture of Kovy produced by the studio of Joongho Choi.
“Especially, the chair, the furniture of Kovy series, is designed on the considerate engineering frame focused on helping customers feel comfortable under the considerationof the structure of a human body through the sense of stability with the aesthetic line and the back of a chair made by an iron.” – JOONGHO CHOI
