Izabel Lam is a sculptor and an American fashion designer. Lam turned to industrial design from fashion in 1988. In a neo-baroque style, she designs housewares, including flatware, picture frames, candlesticks, vases and letter openers. Her 15-piece lighting set was made of oxidised curved steel with shades of metal-mesh.
Her line of stainless steel cutlery, silverplated tabletop accessories, has expanded to include glass and porcelain dinnerware since the beginning of the 1990s, introducing metal items made by hot forging. Izabel Lam’s designs are used by renowned chefs, fine dining restaurants and luxury hotels around the world for their introduction of creative cuisine and services, first catering to the retail sector, then responding to a need for creativity in the restaurant and hotel market.
Her love for the beauty of the sea stems from her birthplace, Hong Kong, where she spent her childhood amid fast-moving expanses of water: typhoons, accompanied by sudden calm.
