During the second lockdown we took the opportunity to speak online with the Design Team at KI.
KI’s furniture helps the world’s leading organisations create happy, healthy, high performing working and learning environments. Bringing together good design, advanced engineering and sustainable resources, KI’s products are durable, flexible and offer excellent value. Founded in 1941, KI has grown to become one of the world’s largest, most respected furniture manufacturing groups. KI’s EMEA headquarters in London is supported by an established network of manufacturing facilities and distribution partners across the region.

He manages KI’s design and space planning team and is responsible for all design, 3D visualisation, technical illustrations, photography, and CAD planning. He also specialises in client specific tailoring and customisation of product. Lee enjoys sports, particularly triathlon, so most weekends he will be swimming, cycling or running or all three!

She holds a master’s degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in New York and a degree in Architecture from Universidad Simón Bolívar in her native Venezuela.
