Shoreditch based design gallery ONEROOM featured work of Bethan Laura Wood for the 2017 Shoreditch Design Triangle.
ONEROOM was founded in the early 2000s as a multidisciplinary office which develops an organic research among different fields of visual creativity. ONEROOM’s philosophy is based on the idea that everything is connected, which generates a transversal approach to the project and the interaction between architecture, arts and communication. It is based in London Shoreditch.
Design duo Carlo Ninchi and Vittorio Locatelli launched the gallery during The London Design Festival this September, partaking in the Shoreditch Design Triangle. They curated a mix of furniture, art and design for the festival across the 4 Storey, restored Victorian warehouse. The pair are known for their interior design, photographic shooting, and industrial and graphic design exhibitions.
Bethan Laura Wood is a multidisciplinary designer who obtained her MA in 2009 from The Royal College of Art under the tuition of Martino Gamper. Her work combines colour with detail and explores a range of materials whilst exploring the relationships we make with the objects in our everyday life. She has been described as the ‘Pop Star’ of the furniture world, famed for her eccentric designs and outfits.
Ninchi and Locatelli’s decision to place Wood’s work against the Victorian backdrop and include so many exciting works by a variety of designers, lead to an expressive exhibition. Gio Ponti, Fornasetti, Tom Dixon and Paul Evans were amongst the well respected artists and designers whose work was involved.
