“The two candles are a metaphor for social distancing; they are apart but still supporting one another. The holder connects one candle to another, and, though it may seem unstable, the black block in the center firmly sustains and balances them. We are bringing light and staying hopeful together.” —Nino Cho

 

Nino Cho has donated a one-of-a-kind hand drawing inspired by the concepts of mutual support and connection. Her work on paper measures 9 x 12 inches and can be signed front or back, depending on the buyer’s preference.

 

Cho is an artist and designer based in Detroit. She was born in San Francisco and raised in Seoul, where she attended Hong-Ik University, studying Woodworking and Furniture Design. She then moved to Michigan to attend Cranbrook Academy of Art, earning an MFA in 3D Design. This year, she was awarded the sixth annual American Design Honors, presented by WantedDesign and Bernhardt Design.

 

Previously, Cho was recognized as an Honoree of Sight Unseen’s 2015 American Design Hot List, presented in partnership with Herman Miller, and also featured as one of Five Breakout Designers of 2015 in Artsy. She was nominated for the Pure Talents Contest at Imm Cologne in 2016. She held a residency in 2016 in Tuscany, sponsored by London gallery MOS. In 2018, the Toledo Museum of Art invited Cho to participate in the Guest Artist Pavilion Project. In 2019, she was recognized as one of 13 Extraordinary Women in Design and Architecture by Dwell.
