“My design creations can be described as the products of architectural structural and design investigations. Previously, such investigations were conducted for architectural purposes in designing buildings but I have since shifted my focus to designing functional furniture pieces and lighting devices. In the majority of cases, these experiments do not turn out as initially planned. However, no experiment is wasted as even unexpected results broaden my perspective and enrich my design processes.”
Architect and Designer Il Hoon Roh received an AA Diploma from the Architectural Association in London and a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art in London.
After working as an architect at Foster and Partners in London, Il Hoon set up a studio under his name in 2010 to focus full-time on his passion of creating functional art sculptures. Il Hoon’s designs are based on self-form finding shapes, as those found in nature, which are both efficient and strong. He researches and investigates continuously to arrive at the conclusions expressed in his pieces.
In 2012, Il Hoon Roh was selected as a Next Generation Design Leader in South Korea. He has exhibited his works around the world.
