Created by textile artist Margo Selby, it is part of ‘The Future of Craft’ exhibition supported by Oxo Tower Wharf, Design Nation and Future Icons within the London Craft Week programme. Each handwoven tile stands alone as a complete study of colour and form, but when assembled in formation, plays with rhythm and movement.
As part of the Tessellation installation for London Craft Week, on display will be the City Gull Wing Sofa by Decca Home upholstered in Margo's Assembly fabric. This collaboration embodies Margo's ethos of Art Into Industry. Assembly fabric was developed through handwoven sampling in our Whitstable studio, and in turn produced in partnership with a specialist commercial mill through extensive development by skilled craftsmen to emulate the rich qualities and textures of handwoven cloth.

Margo Selby is a celebrated textile artist, creating distinctive handwoven artworks which unite a modernist aesthetic with the depth and texture that is inherent in woven textiles. Individually handwoven in her Whitstable studio, the artworks are created using a technique called Lampas. Lampas was initially developed in the 17th century to weave decorative brocade fabrics. Margo is now using these weave structures in a new way to create abstract colour studies with a modernist feel.
