Korean Designer Rahee Yoon spent extensive time researching and learning various crafts from working with acrylic to metalsmithing. Her current creative practice are informed by her research and reinterpreted and defined by the unique subtlety imbued in each piece.
Rahee Yoon is a Seoul-based designer and artist. Having majored in extensive crafts of metalwork, textile, ceramics, and woodworking, she opened her own studio in 2017 and has presented a wide array of artworks. Her works are defined by the unique subtlety imbued in each piece.
In particular, Yoon has abandoned the conventionally perceived meaning of the noun acrylic amidst profound research on the key material acrylic for over eight years. Her works are manifested based on the image and juxtaposition of the adjective as modifier and verb as a state of being, such as ‘to permeate deeply,’ ‘subtly refract,’ and ‘simply overlap.’
Her aesthetic objet d’arts are brought to life through close collaborations with special engineers in Seoul and small workshops across Korea.
