"Kino Guerin is a master at bending a rigid material to get this beautiful flow and movement. It is not easy to do. These pieces look as if they are effortless, but they are technically very hard. He creates an elegance. A beautiful, lyrical flow. There is nothing common about these pieces. Kino Guerin distinguishes himself from everyone else making furniture today." — Michael Monroe, Executive Director of the Washington Bellevue Arts Museum


Why Knot Bench by Kino Guerin

The fluid and elegant Why Knot series has been featured all around the web, prompting a response from the artist about this mysterious overnight success. Guerin, when asked about the process of creating Why Knot, has only stated, "it must reflect equilibrium between the curve and the straight line, between exuberance and purity. The whole essence of this aesthetic approach can thus be captured at a glance and let one speechless at the sight of this splendid beauty, requiring no props or devices. It is my definition of perfection." It's a perfect mystery.

Toboggan Table by Kino Guerin
 

The Toboggan Table is a good indication of the design aesthetic of Canadian designer Kino Guerin. With sweeping lines, impossible balance, and a two-tone wood veneer that shows off a naturally juxtaposing pair of woods, the Toboggan series is a stunning example of what can be done with imagination and an innovative approach to creating.
