Lee Chi-wing | Founder of Milk Design
Lee Chi-wing studied Industrial Design and graduated from the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, then received his MA from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris.
Lee started off working for Habitat France and Raison Pure, and then joined Philips Design Hong Kong before setting up Milk Design in 1998. Time Out Magazine calls Milk Design one of the Top 25 HK designers, and Monocle Magazine describes Milk as simple yet experimental.
In 2007, Milk Design’s economy class tableware for Cathay Pacific Airway demonstrated a modern interpretation of Chinese culture and tradition, and won several prestigious Asian design awards. Their “New Bamboo Chair” is in the Hong Kong Heritage Museum collection.
Lee truly believes design originates in culture and tradition, and is a part of daily living.
