Ruiqi Dai is a designer from China. She graduated from University of the Arts London in 2016, where Craft Central listed her in the top 22 best graduate designer-makers from across the UK. Following this, she chose to further her study at the Royal College of Art. Her design work Fountainia was awarded A’Design Award Bronze Prize in 2018 and her works have been exhibited internationally and was described by High End Magazine as “using completely original, handmade luxury objects to blend the lines between functional design and sculptural art.”
Ruiqi Dai hopes to explore the balance between sculptural form and functionality through making interactive and playful products that transform daily life gestures into ceremonial moments.
