Kevin Frankental

Kevin is the co-owner and creative director of Lemon. His particular interest is working with materials that originate from the earth. His deep-rooted fascination revolves around understanding the essence of these materials, appreciating their intrinsic qualities, and shaping them into designs that withstand the relentless passage of time.

Intriguingly, his interest revolves around the elusive notion of timelessness. His work is a dedicated exploration into the very heart of this enigma, crafting designs that, like treasures of old, possess an enduring quality and an everlasting resonance. His designs stand as a testament to the eternal allure of artistry in design.

Yaniv Chen

When talking about Yaniv Chen’s work, it feels most pertinent to discuss emotion. The design process centers around emotional cues from photographs, artwork, architecture and fashion. He hones in on a feeling and translates it through his craft to create a piece of furniture. These places, pictures and landscapes all have a common thread. Worlds are contemplative; fashion is deshevelled; interiors are regal, opulent and derelict. This diverse approach allows the creation of pieces that transcend past, present and future. These pieces reflect the world in which he chooses to live.

Leonard Kadid

Léonard Kadid is a French architect and product designer based in Paris. From object to architecture, the work of his studio focuses on structural experimentation and formal simplification to explore the intrinsic characteristics of matter. After studying at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland and the École d’Architecture de la Ville et des Territoires in Paris, Léonard Kadid has collaborated with renowned international offices in Switzerland before setting up his own studio in Paris.

Jade Paton

Jade Paton creates contemporary sculptures out of clay. Her main source of inspiration is the ancient vessel, as well as forms in nature, architecture, design and contemporary art. She pieces various elements together to create unique and other worldly designs. During the building process the shape mutates and evolves into something unexpected. The surfaces of the work can be raw and natural, as if they have emerged from the earth, or saturated and colour driven. The sculptures feel ancient and futuristic at the same time - a juxtaposition of the old and the new. They are both decorative and utilitarian in their timelessness and can exist equally well in an exhibition space or domestic environment.

Jade completed her studies at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, where she majored in sculpture. Her studio, based in Cape Town, South Africa was established in 2018. All pieces are hand crafted and each piece has its unique character.
