US based design magazine features Lisa King and In Perfect Process.
"Every generation witnesses an evolution of visionaries who eventually rise to form a new vanguard within the world of design. London-based print artist Lisa King (@lisakinglondon) is redefining the rules of textiles thanks to her cross-cultural upbringing and her craft’s keen connection to the human experience. Her esteemed roster of clients includes Diane von Furstenberg, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. We chatted with the rising designer about her creative process, what it’s like to work with pop icon Kylie Minogue and her recent collaboration with the London Flower School.
As a designer, from where do you draw inspiration?
It’s a huge mix of things. I grew up in Thailand, surrounded by the beautiful chaos of color in Bangkok — a place where modern multicolored buildings are set within a tropical climate, making it a real collage of new and old culture. My mother was a buying agent. She sourced local products and handicrafts for U.S. stores and was an avid collector of antiques and textiles. Originally from Indonesia, she lived in Bangkok for 44 years and collected Ban Chiang bronze ceramics and batik, Persian carpets, Japanese lacquerware, kimonos, Balinese paintings, and more.
Our home had a garden full of mango and banana trees, orchids, and bird of paradise plants, so naturally I source a lot of inspiration from nature. I draw a lot of parallels between nature and the human condition and try to convey it through my work. Studying in England, I learned to appreciate the many shades of gray, or minimalism, so to speak. Even though I’m probably a maximalist, studying at Central Saint Martins and living in London definitely taught me that less is more.
Lastly, I’d say music, movement and people play a big part in my creation process. I draw a lot of inspiration from my own personal experiences, and I hope my work allows people to resonate from their own in mine."
