Designers Hyunjung Lee

Known for her art furniture, Hyunjung Lee(b.1974) received her doctorate degree in woodcraft from Hongik University and is currently an adjunct professor of the Hongik University’s woodworking and furniture department. She adapts the precise lines and proportions of the Joseon Dynasty’s traditional wooden cupboard and window-side table in her furniture and combines semitransparent sliding door to stage variation of colors. The expression of materials in her works are inspired by the Korean traditional patchwork and cloth composed of geometrically abstract sides. Creating a new abstract space is staged by alteration of colors in the cloths. The tension created by the lines and planes cage light or add depth to her furniture, implying both abstract beauty and structural aesthetics.
