Seoul-based studio PESI has designed a side table using planks of cardboard that have the appearance of wood. ‘PESI’, which stands for Possibility, Essential, Standpoint, Interpretation, is a design studio founded by two designers (Byounghwi Jeon, Seungjoon Song).

The table is designed to be easily assembled and, once no longer needed, disposed of. At the same time, the designers wanted the table's aesthetic to be different from other cardboard furniture, which they said was usually folded or laminated.

This ongoing project is a recreation of his grandparents’ home village in China one individual at a time. The discarded materials that he uses relate to the nature of the connections he is attempting to reconstruct. The forms are abstracted, and the backs of the figures are left unfinished, revealing hollowness and the artist’s meticulous construction. His work is not so much about the individuals that are represented as it is about his own attempts to understand them, and also the limitations of these efforts.
