Meet The Makers

Knowing an object’s story — who produced it, how, and with what materials — let us establish an emotional and physical relationship to the object and its culture. 
Please stay tuned, as we will add interviews with the makers, photos and short films that document the development and production process.


Setbyol Oh from oh-licht, Germany

Berlin based Korean artist Setbyol Oh creates lamps using fine wicker and mulberry paper. It is a traditional Korean paper named hanji which has been used for hundreds of years in Korea for doors, windows, wallpaper and to make lamps in traditional houses.
