Camilla Lee

 

Camilla is a London based designer/maker working in the field of furniture, lighting and sound.

Whilst studying 3D Design & Craft at Brighton University, she developed a broad range of skills working with various materials. In particular, she favoured the aesthetics and organic sound qualities of wood and ceramic.

Application of sound and pattern has become a recurrent thread within her work, linking themes of sound therapy, interaction and lines, fusing functionality with unique aesthetic forms.

Camilla now works at Cockpit Arts in Holborn, London and has created the Resound collection.

The Resound collection started from extensive research into music therapy and the way in which natural materials can enhance sound quality.

From making xylophones from different timbers and materials, Camilla investigated the natural sound tones. From this, she decided to use walnut as the main wood and Parian ceramic.

From playing with these materials she aims to enhance the electronic sound and visual aesthetic of the iPhone. To accompany the iPhone amplifiers she developed a way to visualise my synesthesia through artwork. By seeing colours when she hears sound, Camilla developed a colour palette from a selected song and uses the brushstrokes to represent accents in the music and the rhythm.
