Korean designer born in 1985, a graduate of Hongik University and the Royal College of Art in London, who lives and works in London and Seoul. Her “Frozen” project was first presented as part of her MA in 2012, before being developed through several collections and exhibited at design festivals such as Dutch Design Week, Milan Design Week, London Design Festival and Miart in Milan.

In his “Frozen” series, Lee Jung In exploits a new creative process by combining industrial processes with manual manufacture and by combining different materials, notably jesmonite. Jesmonite is aesthetically similar to stone, but composed of plaster and acrylic resin, making it ideal for moulding.

Like origami, each piece of ‘Frozen’ is ingeniously folded into unusual, irregular shapes. Each one is unique.
