Renowned for its exceptional design prowess across Europe and Asia, and bolstered by an ever-growing portfolio of successful projects in the United States, Martin Kemp Design is gearing up to introduce its ultra-luxurious residential and commercial design services to American shores.
Spearheaded by the dynamic leadership of their CEO, Jemimah Graff, who will soon relocate from the studio’s London headquarters, this transatlantic expansion signifies a watershed moment for the brand.
Elevating Ambitions: Crafting Luxury Beyond Boundaries

The hallmark of their portfolio encompasses super-prime residential developments, exclusive private residences, opulent superyachts, and bespoke private aviation interiors. The narrative of Martin Kemp Design’s American venture is rooted in founder Martin Kemp’s own journey.
The trajectory began in the bustling creative hub of Los Angeles, where Kemp laid the foundation for his illustrious career. In 2012, Martin Kemp Design was born, and the studio embarked on a remarkable journey that would see it leave an indelible mark on both sides of the Atlantic. A decade-long engagement with New York City‘s design ethos saw the studio craft a series of opulent private residences catering to their discerning European clientele. Notably, their design prowess graced the iconic Time Warner building, etching their presence into the urban fabric.

As the studio sets its sights on an even brighter future, a spectacular chapter is set to unfold. This Fall heralds the completion of a breathtakingly executed New York City sub-penthouse, a crowning achievement in the prestigious ONE57 building, offering unparalleled views of Central Park.
A testament to Martin Kemp Design’s unwavering commitment to creating spaces that transcend the ordinary, this masterpiece promises to be a harbinger of their future conquests. The decision to establish a physical presence in the United States is a testament to the burgeoning demand for Martin Kemp Design’s bespoke services. With a dedicated team poised to set foot on American soil come September, the studio’s aspirations to cultivate a transatlantic portfolio have never been more resolute.
CEO Jemimah Graff, a luminary in the realm of high-end luxury design, will take the reins in New York City. Her multifaceted role will encompass catalyzing business development, orchestrating US team recruitment, steering interior design services, and even nurturing the evolution of bespoke furniture. Notably, the studio’s debut product line, unveiled at the esteemed Salone del Mobile in April, resonated exquisitely with European connoisseurs.

Commenting on this momentous juncture, Jemimah Graff, the visionary CEO of Martin Kemp Design, articulated, “The surge in demand from the US market, coupled with our triumphant acquisition of diverse projects in the region, has naturally propelled us towards establishing a studio in New York. At our core, we remain committed to the perpetual refinement of our expertise, style, and application. The resounding success of our inaugural retail collection in Europe serves as a testament to our expanding clientele. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to be present in New York, cultivating our global presence.”
