Kihoon Son



Hello!
I’m a second year Ph.D. student in the School of Computing at KAIST. I work with Juho Kim as a member of KIXLAB.

I specialize in Human-Computer Interaction and Human-AI Interaction. My research focuses on generative model-based interaction techniques aimed at boosting designer creativity and capturing their implicit knowledge.

Design work

Underground Flow

Project background

Janghanpyeong is the largest automobile industrial estate in Korea. However, due to the old buildings and outdated facilities and equipment, the number of people visiting this place has decreased significantly. Also, there are not enough spaces for users and mechanic.

To solve this problem, we conducted a space regeneration design project, Underground Flow.



Design solution

Belleville Armchair miniature

The elegant and stylish Belleville Armchair Plastic Outdoor is designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for the manufacturer Vitra. In this project, I remaked the chair through acrylic material and self-made mold. By detailed modeling of mold, the miniature model represents an elaborately detailed curve in the chair.
