Rosie Li was born in 1989 in Zhengzhou, China and emigrated to the United States at the age of three. When her fourth-grade art teacher discovered her above-average ability to render animals, Rosie was encouraged to pursue drawing and painting. This applied interest eventually led her to the Rhode Island School of Design in 2007 where she studied Furniture Design and she developed a sensibility toward materials and rational design .Blending graphic elements and geometric forms, Rosie creates work that challenges visual capabilities and perception. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
Rosie Li created Stella sconce. Named after the painter Frank Stella and inspired by his early work, the mirrored glass reflects infinite nested geometric shapes that feels like you’re standing inside a mirrored room. This piece is made by mirrorred glass, brass , steel and wood. This piece was presented this year in ICFF in the Roll & Hill booth. Called Stella and designed by RISD grad Rosie Li, the sconce is a geometric mind-game.
