Seoul-based designer Shim Seungyeon has been experimenting with the creation of furniture and lighting since 2018. The latest pieces out of his studio are the Pressura Stool and Table, bold yet organic forms that have a solid – and somehow soft – presence about them.
Pressing hollow metal pipes is a technique often used by metalworkers to fabricate structures efficiently, which is what led Seungyeon to the process used here as well as the moniker. The pipes comprising the stool and table feature an unusually large diameter, adding visual impact and strength. Their compression plays a significant role, articulating connection points for the legs to the seat plate and to the upper frame of the table.
The design of both pieces subtly assert themselves within a space. The Pressura Table extends the three-legged support structure from the Pressura Stool, offering up an organic silhouette. Both pieces are available in glossy color finishes, like yellow, red brown, cream, silver, navy, and pistachio. A glass top option is offered for the table to amplify the frame’s presence while softening its appearance. Seungyeon notes that there’s potential for the development of future alternatives to come like wood and marble tops.
