After studying English at Cambridge University, Amy Bradford started her career at a trend forecastin­g agency before working as Features Director at ELLE Decoration UK for over a decade. Since going freelance, Bradford has written for a range of brands and publicatio­ns, including The Telegraph and the London Evening Standard. In this issue of AD Middle East, she writes about the fascinatin­g life of iconic Italian designer Gabriella Crespi (p.30).

Favourite design object? One thing I’ve loved for as long as I can remember is Luciano Vistosi’s Onfale glass table lamp of 1978 – a supremely unadorned mushroom shape. Your favourite city? Venice. It has a dreamlike quality. I find the water and the absence of cars soothing, but it still has the cultural advantages of a city.
