Planter by Jeonghwa Seo
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Commissioned by Twin city Namsan, a newly built office building located in Seoul, Korea, Jeonghwa Seo designed planters made from five different materials, Brass, copper, stainless steel, basalt, granite for planting trees at the sunken space of the building.
The challenge in designing these planters was to use variety of materials and combining them in the best way.
The brass, copper and stainless steel planters are made of 2mm thick metal sheets. They are folded in several parts and assembled together in rounded shapes.
The basalt and granite planters are made of solid pieces of stone and assembles.
Each material requires a different technique of making but the end result creates a formal similarity between all of them.
