EDITION 2022

OMA SPACE 

Art and design studio based in Seoul 

The team consists of Jang Jiu (founder and director), Daniel Kapelian (art director and partner) and Kyoungyoung Gil (designer and partner). Advocating a return to nature and the embodiment of Eastern and Western sensibilities, the studio produces works at the frontiers of contemporary art and design, immersive installations and clothing. It is committed to experimental work blending tradition and innovation based on the acquisition of primitive techniques and digital tools, with a focus on the sustainable coexistence between man and nature throughout its design process.

With our art & design objects and installations, we weave tradition and innovation. We master primitive techniques and digital tools to create spirited works that connect with nature in new ways.

With our clothes, we dress the body and we dress the soul. Each piece is unique or in very limited edition, handmade with great care and time.

With our interiors, we create objects, lights, spaces and atmospheres impregnated by minimalism and Zen practice, and by the desire to provide comfort for the body and the mind.
In all of our work, we embody a distinct philosophy embodied in respect for environmental sustainability and the designers who work with us.
