Ximon Lee x Leica

Sometimes, when creativity strikes, one must be prepared to strike fast on ideas. Designer Ximon Lee featured in a recent portrait with Leica on his creative approach to his designs, and how documenting every step of the way with a camera that not only complements his work, but invites him to push his creative boundaries.

‘White is my favourite colour’, he says. ‘Because you can always add something on it and something can always disappear in white.’

Lee’s work relies heavily on photography, as it not only documents the creative and design process, but works as a tool for reimagination – images subtly suggest solutions to design problems.

Lee works with Leica’s new TL which offers a range of additional and improved user-friendly features based on its predecessor, the Leica T.

‘I think in the 21st century there‚Äôs no lines between products and art anymore. You can carry a beautifully finished garment as art piece. It moves around with you. I think art is very broad and a designer is too limited to problem solving. I am more of a storyteller and a narrator.’
