»You don’t think your way to creative work.
You work your way to creative thinking.«
George Nelson, Designer and Architect
London born designer Christopher Lees has schooled at Central St. Martin and Kingston University, studying architecture interior design and production design for film and TV, working in various fields of design, from luxury residential, retail, hotels and restaurants across the globe, from Los Angeles to Hong Kong.
Clients include Reiss, Zimmerman, The Inception Group, Story & Co., Hippo Inns, The Gondola Group, Bufa Berlin, Daio’s Cove Luxury Villas and Hotel group, and recently completed on the reinvention of Margate’s Dreamland as creative director.
The first collaboration that Alt Collective is proud to announce, is with Christopher Lees, 2012 and 2014 winner at the London Restaurant and Bar Awards, who is launching his first cross market collection, The Cadogan Collection.
The Cadogan Collection is perfectly suited for both premium hospitality and luxury residential developments. The collection is inspired by Christopher’s renovation of a luxury property in Cadogan Gardens in London. In the late 19th century, the area was considered a bohemian quarter, attracting a myriad of radicals, artists and poets.
The mid-century modern designers and architects Vladimir Kagan, Joaquim Tenreiro and George Nelson have been a major source of inspiration for Christopher’s designs, which are functional in design and timeless in finish.
