Teo Yang, with degrees from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and the ArtCenter College of Disgn in Pasadena, began his career in creative hubs in Europe and the US. In 2009, he founded his studio in Seoul, collaborating with luxury brands like Vacheron Constantin and Fendi, as well as institutions like Kukje Gallery and Gyeongju National Museum. Yang's portfolio includes opulent commissions and historic restoration projects, demonstrationg his dedication to revitalising heritage and culture in South Korea and cementing his position as a leading figure in the country's contemporary creative landscape.

Seoul is in constant motion. The traditional Korean housing vernacular known as 'hanok' began to disappear in the late 1900s, leaving only small clusters in today's larger South Korean cities. Reflecting on this cultural legacy, Teo Yang explores innovative responses to the evolving cityscape by creating objects that reinterpret architectural remnants, aiming to preserve their significance while adapting them for contemporary use and contributing to the ongoing narrative of urban transformation.

The collection Remaining Things comprises eight distinct objects, each offering a unique reinterpretation of historical elements. Among the initial four pieces unveiled are: the Mobile Divider, which redefines spatial boundaries through the integration of wood veneer and chrome into found hanok panels, resulting in a multifaceted sculptural room divider; the Mobile Bookstand, a minimalist storage unit that pays homage to the scholarly tradition with its mobility and geometric design; the Floating Shelf, repurposed from old hanok ceiling remnants and embellished with chrome and marble accents; and the Table Centrepiece, an artful composition featuring a glass tabletop balanced on a chrome base and a hanok column.
