Based in: Seoul
Haneul Kim is a young and up-and-coming Korean designer who has risen rapidly since the Corona crisis. He chose to use disposable masks as his material, a worldwide problem, and invented a way to recycle them.
He is a designer who focuses more on telling his message through his work than on the beauty of form.
"I make a chair-shaped module that melts, cools, and hardens the plastic mask. Thousands of masks, which were this thin fabric, combine together and finally have the durability of a hard, tough plastic that can function as stool."
