Artist Zoe Bradley, featured in W*117
In our Entertaining Issue (W*117), on sale today, we feature a five-page photo shoot of some of our favourite new tables and chairs, shapely designs by the likes of Tom Dixon, Established & Sons, B&B Italia, and Kartell (p 196).

We don’t blame you, though, if you find your eyes momentarily distracted by the stunning set piece running down the centre of each page, an illuminated folded paper creation by the masterful Zoe Bradley (part of the shoot is featured in our gallery, above). Bradley’s intricate installations have wowed us ever since she made her start designing show stopping showpieces for Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer collection in 1999.
Since then her work has graced the windows of some of the world’s most visible and prestigious storefronts, from Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Harrods in London, to Missoni in Milan, Brown Thomas in Dublin, and most recently, upcoming Christmas decorations at Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York. Her work has also featured in numerous high profile advertisements and magazine spreads. You might remember the giant red poppy on p 274 of our May issue (W*110).
To coincide with Bradley’s December shoot we sat down with the artist to talk all things paper [read the interview here], and decided to showcase some of our favourite of her designs from over the last nine years, in our gallery above.
