Heechan Kim

Artist In Residence

Heechan Kim applies traditional craft techniques in new contexts to reimagine and explore outcomes, and challenge craft’s visual potential. At MAD, Kim will continue his practice of reimagining traditional weaving practices using new materials. Researching pattern, color, and the functionality of woven seating, Kim will explore broader questions of sustainable product design.

Kim is currently an adjunct faculty member of Parsons School of Design and the City College of New York. He received an MFA in woodworking and furniture design from Rochester Institute of Technology and a BFA in metal arts and jewelry from Seoul National University.
