Striking sculptural textiles

  • • Helen won the Oxo Peugeot Design Award in 2003
  • • She designs and creates three dimensional textiles
  • • She handcrafts installations for renowned brands

Helen Amy Murray’s sculpted, textile surfaces and artworks can be found in prestigious residences, multi-starred hospitality ventures and flagship stores around the world. Since launching her eponymous studio in 2003, she has been sought after by interior designers and architects keen to harness the wow factor of her work. Having originally studied textile design, she perfected her own three dimensional technique while still at college, which led directly to a private upholstery commission with Lady Aliai Forte. Her first wall covering attracted the attention of Candy & Candy. “They commissioned a 5 metre-wide city skyline in chocolate brown silk for a cinema room, which in turn led to private commissions,” recounts Helen.

Flora and fauna are a regular source of inspiration for Helen, in particular the geometry, pattern and repetition found within nature. This artwork is part of a private collection in Thailand.
