Jihoon Ha is an internationally well known designer, and the first graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in Denmark. Ha has a good understanding of material and design. He has been working to re-interpret traditional Korean furniture. He has given tradition a new look, by developing his own designs based on everyday Korean furniture.
With Ha’s design concept only the simplest essence is produced with the greatest care, to keep details alive. He attempts to cross the boundary between art and everyday objects.
His work is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK; Frankfurt Modern Art Museum, Frankfurt, Germany; National Folk Museum of Korea; and National Hangul Museum, Seoul, Korea.
