Soap star: graduate Seungbin Yang raises the bar
It’s the time of the year when we celebrate new talent, scouring schools for the best graduate projects. We kick off with the work of Design Eindhoven graduate Seungbin Yang, who has raised the bar with this sculptural soap. Inspired by Iceland’s dramatic landscapes, ‘Panta Rhei’ (meaning ‘everything flows’) is designed to reflect nature’s flowing forms. Made from soap foam and set on a stage of brass, marble and wood, the sculpture’s form develops and fades over time with use.
