Daegyu Kim’s Designpost is inspired by the sweeping curve of Regent Street.

Daegyu’s Designpost is part of a wider collaboration between LDF, the American Hardwood Export Council, and three leading British furniture makers Benchmark, Sebastian Cox and Jan Hendzel that pays tribute to London’s neighbourhoods and presents the potential of an underused and highly sustainable material – American red oak. The majestic sweeping curve of Regent Street inspires Daegyu Kim’s homage to the classical architecture of West London. Using long tubes and blocks of timber to create abstracted versions of the arches and windows of the streetscape, Daegyu seeks to recreate the powerful sensory impression one feels when emerging from the darkness of the Underground station to be greeted by the scale and splendour of the street. The Designpost is located in the Design Museum and is one of ten that can be found in locations across London; Islington, King’s Cross, Shoreditch, Southwark South, Brompton, Waltham Forest, Greenwich, Park Royal and Clerkenwell. Made by Benchmark Furniture.
