BDB NY / Since 2008

BDB NY is a New York based design studio offering both functional and sculptural ceramics made by hand. Each piece is a unique assembly of individually rolled out clay slabs and coils created by a 'hand and clay' collaboration inspired by the contemplative process of ceramics and belief in simplicity.


Re Jin Lee (RJ) was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil to South Korean parents. This combination of cultures has a great influence in RJ’s design aesthetics.

After receiving degrees in Fashion and Design at FASM, Central Saint Martins, London College of Design and Istituto Europeu di Design, RJ moved to the U.S. to pursue a career in fashion design and styling where she discovered her passion for home and product design.

Like her Brazilian and Korean heritage, fashion plays a major influence in RJ’s design aesthetics and also the way BDB NY’s collections are created and presented.
