Pat Kim is a New York based designer and artist working primarily in objects and furniture rooted in the philosophy of sculptural simplicity and enduring quality. 

The importance of a hands on and self-sufficient approach are key factors in his work. Driven by a compulsive need to experiment and learn in his waterfront Redhook studio, Pat is constantly creating works that build on self taught techniques and those gleaned from traditional craft.  His works span the gamut between art to the functional, in three and two dimensions. 

His studio practice reflects a creative conflict of philosophies: oscillating between pure form exploration and tight functional pieces; between carefully planned, purposely executed pieces and expressive experiments in material and method. Pat studied Industrial Design at the Pratt Institute, with a short stint at the Weimar Bauhaus-Universität.
