JiB design studio was founded in 2012 by Je‐Uk Kim, a London‐based Korean designer. The studio works on a broad range of project types and scales ranging from architectural projects to furniture, products, curating and exhibition design. Je‐Uk has worked at architectural practices in New York, Copenhagen and London after studying architecture at the University of Michigan.
The ethos of the studio is to operate at different scales of spatial design and exploration with a design approach rooted in architecture. Composition, proportion, materiality and relationship to context are important elements in creating timeless works.
JiB is a device used in cinematography to enable the camera to capture visuals not reachable by hand. Additionally JiB also means home/house in Hangul (Korean). Metaphorically, we used ‘architecture’ as the device to extend to the outer realm of architecture.
