Kia Utzon-Frank

A product designer, jewellery maker and inventor, Kia Utzon-Frank studied as a goldsmith, silversmith and metalworker at the Royal College of Art. With a strong architectural and sculptural thread running through her work, Kia earned an InnovationRCA fellowship for her pioneering shutter system, the Louver Twisting Comb – an ingenious mechanism that uses comb-fitted bars and strips of flexible fabric to create a fully configurable blind with both aesthetic and industrial applications. The innovation won Kia several prizes, a nomination for a Dyson Fellowship, and was widely covered across the media, with features on BBC Radio 4, Wallpaper*, It’s Nice That and others. She’s currently working on bringing the product to market, alongside designing jewellery and furniture, experimenting with inventive new structural forms and exhibiting her work, under the KUFstudio's moniker, and has exhibited across the US and Europe and has featured at the Sir John Soane Museum, the London Design Museum, the V&A and more.

WHAT WE DID FOR Kia Utzon-Frank
