Thread is linear. That does not mean that it has to remain thin and flat. Coated in epoxy and wrapped around a rectangular frame, Junho Jeon transforms it into a 3D shape. More than just a functional way to define a space, Jeon’s ‘Thread Divider’ also lends its own aesthetic to the interior. The heavy concrete block used as an anchor further accentuates the airy fragility of the standing textile strands. Adding a light inside sets the whole aglow – a luminous pillar of parallel lines.
