Surroundings of everyday life often become a starting point for the design projects of Yoon Seok-hyeon. Yoon observes and analyzes them and then trys to link them to design, environment, society, and industry.
His interest in projects is the materiality and socio-cultural value of design objects. With this interest, each project reflects undiscovered stories of human life.
Yoon's design process follows concept arrangement based on exploring a subject, in-depth research for materiality and contexts, hands-on practice such as drawing and model making and production.
// Terra Eternity
Earth is the origin of everything and it’s the most natural material we can work with.
With this project, ’TERRA ETERNITY’, Studio Yoon Seok-hyeon intends to bring the material to our space of everyday life. This attempt would allow us to relish the eternal value of earth and to raise a question about the damaged sustainability of all things today.
The object created with a mixture of sand, soil, and natural adhesive proves the material's practical and aesthetical values as showing its raw texture and color. This object can be recycled easily or returned to our ground without polluting after its service.
