Not being biased because we know these two (and my are they lovely) but this newly completed website showing the collaborative work of Isabel Gibson and Helen Chesney is brilliant. Isabel Gibson was one of the Graduates last year, winning us over with her Africar project. Helen and Isabel attended University together and, as soon as they realised they were both kind of on the same track ideas-wise, they started collaborating on a range of commissioned and self-initiated projects with one another.
One year on they have formed a somewhat indestructable power-duo and are now taking the design world by storm with their ingenious set designs. Tate? Done. Rooftop of Netil House? Done. An entire Willy Wonka themed New Year’s Eve party? DONE. Can’t wait to see what these two scamps get up to next.
