Yining Ge 葛逸宁 (b. 2001, Hangzhou, China) is a furniture designer currently based in Providence, RI. He grew up in Hangzhou, China, and has lived in New York and Vermont. Recently, he completed his bachelor's degree in furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Yining primarily works with wood but also engages in projects involving metal, ceramics, and textiles. His  deep connection with materials lends him a contemplative vision, allowing him to see beyond the surface. Drawing inspiration from monolithic structures, his studio practice explores the relationship between materiality and graphic silhouettes. Additionally, Yining's work is an exploration, a quest to redefine functionality within the realms of the utilitarian, merging the practical within every creation. 

Currently, Yining is in his senior year pursuing a BFA in Furniture Design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
