With the motto “ordinary objects can become something else,” designer and artist Kwangho Lee makes handcrafted furniture, lighting, and jewelry from unexpected materials.
He has always enjoyed making things with his hands, which comes from living with his grandparents in the countryside when he was little. He remembers watching his grandfather making all sorts of tools out of seemingly everyday things found in and around the house and nearby woods. The house was full of his grandfather’s handcrafted inventions, and this became the inspiration for lee’s future work as an artist and designer.

In remembrance of his grandfather, Kwangho began to find, look and approach things in the way his grandfather would have done; giving new meaning and function to everyday objects and materials.

He has developed a way of knitting industrial materials to create lamps from tangles of extension cords, as well as the Obsession series of couches and stools made from woven garden hoses. In addition, his work revives endangered craft processes like chil-bo enamel, which he employs to create a complex patina on copper furniture.
