A young, globally fluent American designer who began his career in Europe.

Chairs. It’s the most intimate object you can design.

Sean is a Korean-American who was raised in Los Angeles and started his design career in Milan. In 2002 he won the coveted Concorso Young & Design Award, which honours the best young design talent working in Italy - the first non-Italian to receive the accolade in the Award's twenty-year history. From his current base in Mexico City Sean works on design commissions from a prestigious range of international clients. His eclectic background infuses his approach, resulting in pieces rooted in utility but that "transcend cultural boundaries"; his refined 'Willow' chair for Joined + Jointed is an excellent case in point.
