Yue Wei

Show RCA work

Major project:

Yue Wei develop materials through experimental processes and creating innovative techniques. Alongside her in-depth exploration of non-textile materials such as perspex, resin, wax, silicon and natural properties, combining the study of traditional handicraft skills, she has purified her design philosophy as the incorporation of advanced technology and cultural heritage.

Yue generated material concept from a cross-diciplinary collaboration between Vehicle Design, Textiles and Service Design on a brief for Jaguar Land Rover. Her design ideas have developed into various functional, flexible materials for potential applications such as vehicle side door, interior seats and removable storage.

Beyond the collaboration Yue continuously developed further material structures and investigated broader approaches within the contexts of fashion accessories, architecture and interior. Integrating digital aid technology, her hand dyed and hand woven perspex and leather pieces present strong sense of colour, functionality, as well as minimal and contemporary aesthetic. Yue's final collection is formed by two sections: a handbag collection and a material sample collection.
