OLIVIA LEE, Singapore

Olivia Lee is the Principal Designer at an eponymous design studio grounded by an industrial design approach. The practice pivots from product to spatial design, research insights to ideation, with the goal of creating unique experiences. Lee focuses on uncovering new rituals and behaviours, navigating the tension between tradition and the future, and bringing brands into unexplored territories through design and narrative. Lee has produced work for international partners such as Hermès, The Balvenie, Mann+Hummel, Samsung, Mathmos, Bank of Singapore, Economic Development Board of Singapore and the British Council. Her work has been exhibited in Milan, Berlin, Paris, Tokyo and London, and published widely. In parallel with her professional practice, Lee lectures at the National University of Singapore. A graduate of Central Saint Martins, Olivia Lee combines her experiences in London with her Singaporean roots to establish a culturally nuanced design practice in the heart of South East Asia.
