<Inlay> is a technique that inserts various unique materials into the concave surface of the original object. Using inlay technique, we combined leather and iron plates, two contrasting materials, into a single surface. The user can separate this furniture that seems to be one unit into two units for their convenience. Also over time the inlaid leather on the upper part of the furniture grows darker drastically compared to the leather on the side part of the cut section, due to the user's contact and the environment. Through such changes and contrasts, we wanted to show the relationship between these two very different materials.

After a year, Steel and leather make up the same surface, but unlike artificially processed steel, the leather naturally changed in tone due to a year of aging. You can also see that the outer leather is in a more tanned condition than the inner leather. Along with ‘contrast between different two materials’, ‘contrast within the same materials’ was the core of the work, and as time passed by, the visual of the work became clearer as intended.
