ABOUT:

Emily Forgot is a London based designer whose multidisciplinary practice encompasses art, design & illustration for a diverse range of international clients such as The V&A, Somerset House, The Mondrian hotel, Selfridges, Herman Miller & Absolut.

Emily's first solo show 'Neverland' took place during London Design Festival 2016. It was that exhibition that led to the creation of her celebrated wooden, architectural 'Assemblages'. In her personal work she uses her recognisably playful & graphic visual language to explore her passion for interior spaces, architecture & colour. The resulting hand made assemblages not only exist in a space between the real and the imagined but also somewhere between the 2D and the 3D world.  Since then collectors, interior designers, stylists and architects have commissioned bespoke pieces for a variety of private and commercial projects. 

Alongside studio commissions Emily's insatiable curiosity for all things visual finds it's home on her Instagram feed and in her curated journal, Muse & Maker — with a focus on three dimensional objects & spaces both past and present she aims to celebrate and share that which inspires her own creative design practice.
