This Designday, the friendly folk at Studio Italia hosted the glossy and colourful works of artist Hye Rim Lee. Lee also created a performance which included two dancers, dressed in the bunny-like manner of her artwork, to interact with the various pieces of furniture there. This was set to an emotive and heartfelt opera soundtrack. Sensual, colourful and glamorous.
