These sketchy images might look like your run of the mill doodles, but look closer and you’ll see that they’re actually photographs of three-dimensional furniture. In his new “Drawing Furniture Series,” Korean artist Jinil Park has created four delightfully deceptive furniture pieces that look like rough two-dimensional sketches. Each piece is created from intersecting metal wires of varying thicknesses hammered together to match the look of different line weights drawn by pen and ink.

The concept behind the Drawing Series, says Park, was created by accident when he began sketching out ideas for a new project in his notebook. He became intrigued by each individual pen stroke and how the lines put together created an object. Park chose five of his sketches–two chairs, two lamps, and a table—to transform into their physical forms.

“The key point of my work is that moment where the line is distorted,” says Park. “They express the designer’s feeling, status, and emotion.” Constructed from intersecting hammered wires of irregular thicknesses, Park spot-welded the metal wires together to create a strong enough frames that would support the weight of a person. He also photographed each piece against a bright white background to minimize shadows and emphasize the hand-drawn sketchy illusion.
