Chieut (ㅊ) was, literally, the main inspiration behind it all, as a fearless pictorial translation of the Korean word to a sophisticated table; thus highlighting another possible facet of minimalism, denying abstraction as a result and welcoming figurative visual representation.

Art, Table, Chieut, Skinny
Created out of solid steel, the Table Chieut almost looks like a Korean logogram from the side. It uses three thin, widely splayed legs to keep a heavier steel tabletop balanced, regardless of how much you stack on top.
Compromising between the detail and usability for producing.
