Helen Amy Murray
I first heard about Helen Amy Murray through 100% Design press, but was recently reminded of her genius on design*sponge. One of her recent commissions, a 1950's dentist chair, is a good example of her work. You might think those roses are added elements, but they are amazingly part of the fabric surface. Murray has created a new technique in the textile world, which is no small feat. Her secret approach involves some serious quilting and slicing skills, and the end result is a sculptural surface unlike anything you've ever seen.
