After graduating from the Royal College of Art and Design in London, textile designer Tamasyn Gambell headed to Paris, where she mastered her trade at couture houses such as Sonia Rykiel and Louis Vuitton. In 2007 she relocated to Stockholm to explore the opposite end of the spectrum as a print designer for H&M, launching her own company a year later. A true contemporary modernist, Gambell believes that good design and green design go hand in hand. “I use the most eco-friendly materials and processes,” she says, “as I believe that designers have a responsibility to the environment and that being green does not have to compromise style or quality.” In creating her Abstract Pillow (2012), Gambell was inspired by the colors and energy of tribal textiles and the shapes and simplicity of iconic Bauhaus design. The result is a collection of throw pillows that defy the whims of fashion. The fabric is sourced from a mill in Italy and printed by Gambell and her team in South London. Made in the U.K.
Pillows exhibit variances from one to the next since they’re individually cut from fabric with a repeating pattern, making each one unique.
