ARTIST OF THE COLLECTION

KENNETH LEE

A young talented artist from ART:DIS' artist-in-training programme, Kenneth specialises in incredibly intricate linework which translates beautifully onto our lacquer products. For this collection, we have used a new method of finishing to highlight the intricacies of his artwork. Laser engraving is firstly done on the prepared lacquer wood, and each product is finished with hand-painting – creating a tactile, pleasurable experience when one handles it. In a fetching contrast of reflective black lacquer and shiny gold paint, we immortalised these icons of our home in the most extraordinary year of 2020, from a unique point of view.
