Guest judge of Nest Award
Outstanding young and middle-aged designer of China by Building Decoration Association
Being a post-80s I think that I carry all symbols of this age - rebellious, special and stubborn. Yet sometimes I also feel out of tune with these characters. There is another rigorous, meticulous and tangled me. I am a crazy X-sports fan who loves skiing, skydiving, auto racing and Harley transformation, while on the other side I am a builder of fine and creative living who has fun in interior design, clothing and furniture design and art deco. I am a paradoxical creative - I do design seriously and freely, and live naughtily and happily. I will not be the slave to traditional design, and I am not the follower of mass aesthetic trend, I will not stop on my way of finding myself.

Waterfrom Design Nic Lee
The process of design and its results are difficult to predict, so all the possibilities must be attempted. Only through continuously drawing, creating multiple drafts and versions, can the final answer be found. We maintain the belief that aesthetics comes from approximating what is natural. All the lines of the drawing are not drawn with rulers. The designs I like are not purposefully neat and organized, but to have a little bit of natural lines, which will let us get closer to the space that we want to express." - Nic Lee.
The design director of Waterfrom Design, Nic Lee, has been in designs for over a decade, and his work mixes extreme simplicity with humor. He graduated from the Pratt Institute, New York with a Master of Science in interior design, as well as having participated in Denmark's International Study Program. Throughout his education and career, Nic has melded thinking from the arts, humanities, and philosophy, possessing the logical thinking of architecture and design, as well as the rebellious nature of artists. He likes to be the exception outside the norm, to redefine the current order, and to find the unexpected within the unpredictable inaccuracies. He has received the Golden Pin design award for two consecutive years (2010-11), and was one of the top 10 designers for the Taiwan Interior Design Award (2007-2010). He excels in the use of installation art in spaces, and loves to find his inspirations from life, getting the most out of copious amount of reading, exposure to artworks and exhibitions, and turning the profound feelings thus gained into sparks of design inspirations.
