Table with vase for flower arrangement
The Hwaban is a small piloti structure made of two perforated aluminum plates and columns. The Hwaban means a small table for flowers in Korean. It consists of two sizes of abstract-shaped units and a small cup for holding flowers. This is typologically unique, a combination of a vase and a small table or shelf. This is obviously an idea from Isamu Noguchi's functional ceramic works. These units are always available for new combinations by the user. The strict abstract form contrasts sharply with the organic character of plants. The tension created by this contrast brings the space to life.
