Isabel Yang

(b. 2001, New York) (they/she)

Isabel studies and lives in Providence, RI. Isabel is currently a fourth-year student studying Furniture Design at the Rhode Island School of Design and will graduate with a BFA in Furniture Design in 2023.

Isabel celebrates the in-extraordinary by creating objects for everyday life that emphasize the beauty of routine. She centers her work around the mundane– undressing, dressing, and readying the self– in order to restore dignity to these overlooked tasks. Grounding her practice in the natural and domestic worlds, Isabel works primarily with elemental materials such as wood, metal, and clay. She works continually to blur the lines between fiction and function.

Isabel’s work has been published and exhibitied in Graphite Journal (issue XIII), Are.na 2021 Annual,  College Hill Independent (issue 7),  RISD Furniture Triennial, Gelman gallery, and NYC Design week at ICFF + Wanted Design 2022.
