Nino Cho has donated a one-of-a-kind hand drawing inspired by the concepts of mutual support and connection. 

June 2020

I created a hand drawing of a candle holder. The two candles are a metaphor for social distancing;  they are apart, but still supporting one another. The holder connects one candle to another and though it may seem unstable, the black block in the center firmly sustains and balances them. We are bringing light and staying hopeful together. 

The drawing was created for a fundraiser organized by Design Miami and Anava Project. I hope to realize the candle holders in the near future.

Nina Cho recommended the book below.

Designing design

Book by Kenya Hara

I read this book in 2008 when I was an undergraduate student in the Woodworking and Furniture Design Department. Kenya Hara’s approach to design blew my mind. The project I was most impressed by in the book was using white cotton fabrics to design signage inside the hospital for pregnant women and children. Normally white fabrics become dirty easily, making them seem a poor choice in a place that prioritized cleanliness. Hara, however, saw this as a positive attribute in that by maintaining the white fabrics regularly, the hospital could showcase their commitment to good hygiene and support their ethos of health. I think it’s a paradoxical way of thinking to find an answer and definitely lead to a creative solution. Seeing Hara take his own distinctive approach to the design process helped influence me to do the same. I felt inspired to strengthen and embrace my unique way of design thinking.
