Samsung electronics has a new EVP and Head of the Mobile Experience (MX) Design team – Hubert H. Lee. Previously, Lee was at Mercedes-Benz for over two decades and most recently was Chief Design Officer of Mercedes-Benz China.
As a leader of the MX Design Team, Lee will oversee the styling of Samsung’s Galaxy line including the flagship Galaxy S and Z series of phones, as well as Galaxy tablets and smartwatches.
“Samsung is known for building some of the world’s most beautiful products with designs that have transformed the mobile industry. I am excited to join a company that is on the bleeding edge of mobile innovation and lead the team responsible for creating new mobile experiences through the art of design,” said Hubert H. Lee.

Some of the more “out there” designs created by Lee include the Ener-G-Force concept, which was initially created as an entry to the “2025 Patrol Car” design challenge and later a prototype vehicle was built. As you can see, the design takes inspiration from the G-Class but puts a futuristic spin on it.
