Oei DesignIn 1996 Rizal co-founded Oei Design (pronounced “we” Design) with his wife, Kim Kunasek. Practically an Arizona native, she grew up a stone’s throw away from Taliesin West, F.L. Wright’s school of Architecture. Kim graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in Liberal Arts, with emphasis in Architecture, French, and History, and an M.A. in Art History, specializing in Architectural History. In the 80’s she worked for Brian Wain and Associates, Cork, Ireland, and for RKD in Dublin with Andrew Devane (who, coincidentally, worked with F.L. Wright in the 1950’s at Taliesin). As a graduate student Kim led international tours focusing on Architecture. Kim brings a wide variety of business and international experience to Oei Design. Contact.
