CONCEPT

[INHERENT: PATTERN] is a new grain texture designed by STUDIO BYCOLOR. "Tree is a living material" expressed a message.

In modern times, people live surrounded by various materials ranging from natural materials such as plants and stones to metals, resins, and inorganic materials. We reexamined the "tree", which has been closely involved in human life since ancient times, and started the experiment from the desire that We want the wood to feel more familiar from everyday. By immersing various hardwood trees for a certain period of time in medicine, it turned out that the original fibrous tissue possessed by the wood itself was exposed. We see the appearance of each facial expressions by locality and material type as "the beauty based on the unique patterns of living things" and develop it to various products ranging from contemporary jewelry, interior accessories and wall clocks.
