With the London Design Festival in full swing, The Aram Gallery has been treating the experimental design-philes of the capital to numerous exhibitions showcasing anyone who's anyone in the world of innovative product design right now. Last night was the turn of Bethan Laura Wood; product designer, Royal College fellow, and an all round creative super force, with a seriously enviable rainbow wardrobe.
Her recent practice has been influenced by the urban environments of London and Mexico City, and features a wonderfully varied selection of tones, textures and finishes, emulating the vast diversity of both cities. The stand out pieces of the evening were the light features, which cast the most beautifully ethereal patterns in a selection of candy tones, echoing the glassy spun sugar of her colourful cachetada cocktail installation.
ZIGZAG//CRISSCROSS runs until the 2nd November 2013 and is at The Aram Gallery, WC2B 5SG.
