Shona Heath

Designer

Scottish-born, Worcestershire-raised and London-based Shona Heath is one of the world’s most sought-after set designers and creative directors, revered for her work with photographers such as Tim Walker, Inez and Vinoodh, Paolo Roversi and Nick Knight on both editorial shoots and advertising campaigns. Marrying the mediums of fashion, art and film, her extraordinary talent for contemporary magical storytelling has conjured unforgettable imagery for the likes of Björk, Harry Styles, Goldfrapp and Cate Blanchett; design collaborations with fashion houses such as Acne, Dior, Hermes, Marni, Prada, and Jo Malone London; scenography for Tim Walker’s ‘Wonderful Things’ exhibition at the V&A (making it one of the museum’s most successful photographic exhibitions shows to date, finishing its world tour at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles); and most recently working as the Production Designer alongside James Price for director Yorgos Lanthimos’s film Poor Things (nominated for 11 Academy Awards, 11 Baftas – including Production and Costume Design – and 7 Golden Globes). Shona's vision draws inspiration from the people and the art around her, stretching and distorting motifs from the natural world to create her own unique and imaginative landscapes. Often imbuing irreverence into both the everyday and the luxurious, her work is renowned for its lightness and sense of fun.

Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI.LA 2024 Lilyfoot (they) is Heath’s first limited-edition
exhibition piece with 1882 Ltd. Lilyfoot stands at
3ft high and 1.5ft wide, comprising of a mythical
creature hand crafted from stoneware, protected
under a stalk that is punctuated with 3 decorative
stoneware leaves embedded with glowing orbs
(there is also a glowing bubble at the end of
Lilyfoot’s trumpet).
In addition, a giant fragile spoon has been hand
moulded then cast and painted, inspired by one
found by Heath from an African shop at the Ridley
Road Market in east London and a favourite Italo
Calvino short story entitled ‘The Distance of the
Moon’ which made Heath imagine the spoon
scooping up a loose pearl that Lilyfoot had dropped
from the surface of the moon.
The result is not merely a sculptural lamp and a
decorative spoon, but two unique creations born
from one of the most inventive minds of her
generation.
Materials: various.
