Designer Pat Kim creates lathe-turned wooden tops from leftover material and uses them for unconventional swatches - a unique and playful way to envision finishes for future products. This set of five tops is a fun reflection of Kim's broader studio practice, which focuses on material experimentation and traditional craft. Keep them spinning and admire them resting nearby.
Virginia native Pat Kim graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in 2009.
