Soon Cho is an artist based in Toronto, who focuses on making her everyday imaginings into reality. Since finishing school, she
started applying her textile inventions to lighting designs. She first premiered her lamp designs and textile pieces at the Interior Design Show 2009, followed by Radiant Dark 2010, Come Up to my Room 2010, and the Artist Project Toronto 2011. Soon loves finding different materials to express her creativity whether it is something common like drinking straws or something more fanciful like crystal beads. Soon’s work mostly involves lighting, however, depending on the qualities that the pieces have, the finished work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects.
