About

Yuzhao Huang is a designer born in Guangdong, China, and based in London, UK. He inherits the interest in structures and forms from his aircraft engineer father and physics teacher mother, and develops it into the fields of fashion, products, architecture, sculpture and interior design. A slightly geeky approach can always be found in his practice.

This is a collection of 5 decorative homeware pieces, designed using high-heel language with mechanical elements that can transfer the pieces between forms and create unexpected movements. In the summer 2019, I travelled across Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Serbia to visit 14 SPOMENIKS built in former Yugoslavia era. These abandoned World War II monuments made me feel “REBORN”. In this project, I want to create a collection of “Objects of Wonder” that can deliver the feeling of “rebirth”. This project also explores a new direction of footwear design by seeing high heels as engineering homeware products in the fashion context. This collection can fit in the homeware market for a high-end fashion brand as part of the brand’s lifestyle identity.
