Artist's Corner - Sophie Smallhorn - Artist
Hailing originally from Hertfordshire, British artist Sophie Smallhorn graduated from the University of Brighton in 1994 with a BA in Furniture – specialising in wood, metal, plastics and ceramics. Her dynamic approach to the use of colour and raw materials saw her career take off to a flying start, with exhibitions around the world and collaborations with institutions such as Somerset House, the London Underground and the Olympic committee, who commissioned her to create the magnificent fabric colour-wrap for the 2012 Olympic stadium in London.
Alongside her private practice, Sophie is no stranger to working closely with luxury fashion brands, such as Comme des Garcons for their flagship store in Tokyo, which made her the perfect partner to create site-specific installations for Begg x Co which have been exhibited at Pitti Uomo and Maison&Objet.
We are thrilled to have collaborated once again with Sophie to create a vibrant window installation using upcycled cashmere Wispy scarves at our London Pop-Up shop.
