Yongwon Noh, artist, sculptor



Yongwon Noh, a Korean designer born in 1992 and based in the Netherlands and Seoul, completed his undergraduate studies in Metal Craft at Kookmin University in 2019 and earned his master's degree in Contextual Design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2021.

Inspired by the traditional Korean decorative technique of mother-of-pearl inlay, he reimagines images collected from Korean streets, transforming them into PVC stickers for decorative use.
