2018
Grantee: Cyril Lee

Cyril Lee is an industrial designer and co-founder of Blackbody Lab, a Hong Kong based design studio with a vision to bring productive changes to society through design. Inspired by the physics concept, Lee believes good design should behave just like a "black body", which absorbs and caters variaties in people; neutralizes negative environmental and social impacts; and more importantly, radiates positive influences back to our every day livings. With an educational background in both engineering and design, Lee had worked in the past as a design researcher at HKDI DESIS Lab and an industrial designer at Lagranja Design, a Barcelona based design studio. Some of Lee’s works were exhibited internationally and won multiple design awards, including Universal Design Competition Expert Award (Germany), National Design Dashi Award (China), and he is also an recipient of the Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award 2015.
