Young British design graduate Zoe Murphy is a rising star we discovered at this month’s TENT London design exhibit. Inspired by her seaside home of Margate, Zoe has created a collection of fabulous bespoke furniture and textile pieces. Zoe exhibited her ‘Margate Collection’ during this year’s London Design Festival, at ‘talentzone’and TENT London and was chosen as one of Dezeen’s most talented design graduates of 2008.

Every item from Zoe’s collection is hand crafted and unique. By re-working and upcycling mid 20th century furniture Zoe offers a new lease of life to these otherwise forgotten gems. She then hand prints colourful images of her home town Margate on to scraps of wedding dress silk to give a fresh and contemporary aesthetic. Zoe graduated this summer from Loughborough University with a first degree in Printed Textiles. We love the collection, and think she is one to watch in the future!
