Show RCA work

Major project:

2020 Kitchen

2020 Kitchen is a project questioning the future of domestic activity. I-Fan converts leftovers to biomaterials from a daily meal. 2020 Kitchen not only blurs the boundary between food and material, but gives a viable vision of communication, which aims to evoke the rethinking of the life circle.


  • I-Fan Chen is a material designer and researcher, with an interest in exploring the potential of material. Material is not only a media, but a sensory language of communication.
