Based in the Hudson Valley, Kim's studio is driven by curiosity and the desire to create interesting objects through reimagining discarded materials. While rooted in sculpture, her practice explores a range of experimental techniques and materials.
Kim's debut collection earned a few awards, including the rado star prize, an ICFF award for best seating, and an Interior Design Best of Year Award. She was named to Dwell Magazine's annual list of Young Guns in Design in 2017.
Before launching her studio in 2016, Kim worked for the nation's largest fine art foundry, brought sustainable initiatives to the city of Baltimore, directed a few of Rhode Island's state programs, and worked inside the DC beltway. She holds bachelors and masters degrees from Carnegie Mellon University.
