Zigzag:Crisscross by Bethan Laura Wood

Zigzag:Crisscross is Bethan Laura Wood's first solo show.

Zigzag:CrisscrossBethan Laura Wood’s first solo show – is inspired by the urban environments of London and Mexico City. Presented in The Aram Gallery, her 2013 collection takes reference from temporary structures in London, paying particular attention to scaffolding and awnings in the city’s East End. From her experiences in Mexico City, Wood took inspiration from the architecture of the Palacio de Bellas Artes, triple-relief Baroque detailing and the city’s markets.

Structural references are clear in the furniture; the objects resemble crates or palettes. Wood’s signature – her attention to surface detail – brings a touch of luxury to the otherwise industrial objects. As in her previous works, the surfaces show Wood’s experimentation with marquetry and inlaying. The designer's Crisscross lighting – with layers of floating glass flowers creating a colourful grid of translucency and illumination – also features in the exhibition.
