The challenge was to mass-produce rather than hand-make the duality of pop and elegance created by the creative form that combines straight lines and curves, and the unique texture that is woven by layers of wood, metal, and resin.
We designed the product for mass production, and made straight lines and curves by machining three different materials at the same time.
Among them, the biggest issue was that there was no cutting condition at the manufacturer because there was no product on the market that cuts three different materials at the same time. Therefore, we purchased a new machining center, selected the optimum cutting conditions and materials in-house, and made mass production possible.
