This daybed by Korean designer Hyung Suk Cho blends elements from traditional Korean furniture with the needs of modern houses.

Blank is designed to be “halfway” between a sofa and a bed, and it features a wide flat seat covered by a long cushion and another pair of removable cushions that form the backrest. The seat rests atop a single piece of wood, while the base features three horizontal slats of wood that support the sofa.

The sofa is supported by a wooden ash framework, which borrows on classic “rustic” Korean shapes. The designer also referenced principles of negative space from Korean paintings while creating the furniture.

Blank has two aspects, it’s modern but also classic, and it is going to be able to convey a variety of feelings depending on the space it’s placed in. Its simple colors allows blending into a lot of home decor styles.
