The Mixology14 Scholar Household furniture Designer of the 12 months award, sponsored by KI Europe’s Kickstart programme, has been received by Sang A Choi of Buckinghamshire New University, for her revolutionary types, Beehive and Pony.
Beehive is a chest of drawers inspired by the partnership amongst objects, gaps and place. The notion behind Beehive is to create shadow utilizing minimalist strains and types. Created out of sound oak, its black end increases the reflection and accentuates the notion.
Pony, Sang A’s second piece, employs recycled climbing rope to create a straightforward bar stool. The whole notion and detailing of the stool is inspired by climbing. The frame wrapped with the rope results in curves for a seating posture equivalent to a saddle or harness, producing a experience of protection and comfort even though seated. A re-appropriated climbers’ carabiner is utilized to sign up for the finishes of the ropes beneath the seat. The blue rope goes into and out of the tubes nearly snake-like, emphasising the constant language of climbing and supplying the illusion of keeping the total body with each other as if by magic.
Jonathan Hindle, team MD of KI in the EMEA, comments: “KI are delighted to be recognising and supporting rising expertise when yet again through our ongoing Kickstart programme. Never ever has there been a far more critical time to encourage design expertise to function in the furnishings market.”
Lynn Jones, head of the furniture educational office at Bucks New College, adds: “Sang A is an incredible, new, up-and-coming designer, her award is truly well deserved. Nonetheless only in the center of her one particular calendar year Master’s diploma system, she has demonstrated exceptional style capacity and creative tenacity through her time with us at the college.”

The award is open to any particular person enrolled on a recognised furniture design training course in the Uk.
