Liam Lee

LIAM LEE is an American artist and designer based in New York. With a focus on furniture and textiles that are sculpted from hand-dyed and hand-felted wool, Lee’s work is concerned with the dissolution of the boundary between interior and exterior space, between man-made objects, and what constitutes the ‘natural’ environment.

Lee's work has been shown by Patrick Parrish Gallery at Salon Art & Design and at FOG Design + Art, by Objective Gallery at Nomad Circle, Art021 Shanghai, and Design Miami Shanghai, by Kazerne in Eindhoven, NL, and at Make Hauser and Wirth. His work was recently nominated as a finalist for the 2023 Loewe Foundation Craft Prize. Lee’s work can also be found in Architectural Digest, Curbed, Wallpaper*, Dwell Magazine, Design Anthology, Surface Magazine, and at the Noguchi Museum shop.

Lee received his BA in English Literature from the University of Chicago in 2015. Before starting his own practice, Lee worked for various architecture and design studios in New York, including Reiser+Umemoto. He has also worked with set designer Mary Howard for clients like Loewe, Dior, Versace, and Prada, and for publications like Vogue, Vogue Italia, and Vanity Fair
