Dongseo University Graduate Wins First Prize at Isola Design Awards in Italy
Dongseo University graduate Lee Yeon-soo and her Team AAA won first prize at the 2022 Isola Design Awards held in Italy.
The Isola Design Awards are an annual international competition whose purpose is to bring attention to design studios in the fields of architecture and interior design,
as well as to highlight individual architects and designers who produce inspirational works from around the world.
The Isola Design Awards aim to showcase designers who experiment with craftsmanship and innovative techniques and approaches with an emphasis on quality, originality,
and sustainability, and to provide a space for celebrating outstanding works in the context of the internationally renowned Milan Design Week.
Winning team member Lee Yeon-soo obtained her undergraduate degree from Dongseo University’s College of Design with a major in environmental design in 2017.
In February 2019, Ms. Lee obtained her graduate degree from the Domus Academy in Milan, Italy. While attending the Domus Academy, she co-founded Team AAA
in collaboration with Korean furniture designers who were themselves Domus alumni.
Team AAA’s winning project is a work called “Wiggle Wiggle”. It was entered into the 2022 Isola Design Awards in December and was selected as one of the top three entries.
It finally went on to capture the coveted First Prize.
As finalists at the 2022 Isola Design Awards, Ms. Lee Yeon-soo and her team have been invited to present their work at the 2023 Milan Design Week.
