London Design Week: Adventures in Textiles

October 19, 2012

Disillusioned with the amount of waste and lack of innovation she witnessed in the fashion industry, UK textile designer Tamasyn Gambell turned her sights to fabrics for the home; I spotted her work at Tent London recently and especially admired her geometric-printed lamp shades.

Gambell studied at Chelsea College of Art and the Royal College, has worked at Louis Vuitton and Sonia Rykiel, and has lived in London, Paris, and Stockholm. She aims to "produce luxurious, considered designs while upholding a responsibility to work in the most environmentally and socially responsible methods available. We hand print all our materials in our London-based studio using organic dyestuffs and water based inks. Our production runs are small, minimizing waste and surplus goods." To see more, go to Tamasyn Gambell.
