|A 'Lifestyle' Designer Choi Si-young |
There may be many interior designers, but only few design spaces that are optimized for user convenience. One of them is Choi Si-young, a leading interior designer in Korea, who has worked on numerous projects for the past 30 years.
As a graduate of Hongik University Department of Architecture and Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design, the current President of Korean Society of Interior Architects/Designers has previously served as the Art Director of Pyeongtaek Book City and Incheon International Airport, the Chairman of the Steering Committee of the International Federation of Interiors (IFI), and an advisor for LG Houses and the Korea Land & Housing Corporation.
As an architect and interior designer, Choi Si-young seeks harmony between nature and man, and is regarded as an 'analog' designer, who incorporates the human and cultural elements into his designs. He is also a trend-setter, who sparked a new trend of apartment buildings becoming a designer brand, as one of the interior designers of the famous residential-commercial complex called the Tower Palace.
Instead of simply enjoying his successful career, Choi Si-young is tackling a new challenge. These days, he is undertaking a project to demonstrate how the Korean-style vegetable gardens can look just as beautiful as the Chelsea Gardens in London. The designer, who formerly detested farming, has transformed into a 'farmer' to cultivate and beautify the gardens in Korea.
Top designer Choi Si-young never settles for the present moment, and continually seeks new challenges for personal growth and development to open a new chapter in his life. He also contributes to the development of the design industry by sharing his knowledge, expertise and experience with the junior designers.
