Korean sculptor Jaehyo Lee (b. 1965) creates ingenious forms using both nature and steel, playing with the idea of dualities, appearing both hard and soft. Some of these sculptures are biomorphic (a nonrepresentational form or pattern that resembles a living organism in shape or appearance) while others are truly functional, like this chaise lounge made from pine tree. The material is meticulously shaped and sanded, bringing forth a contrast between the rough and smooth. See more from this playful artist here: http://www.albemarlegallery.com/artists/lee-jaehyo
