Cultural Conduit Design

@ VOL 160 ON OCT 19, 2018

British designer, and Royal College of Art Alumni, Bethan Laura Wood will capture our imaginations with an exploration of some of the award-winning designs that have emerged from her multidisciplinary practice. Her work, characterized by material investigation, artisan collaboration, and a brilliantly colourful passion for detail investigates the relationships we make with objects in our everyday lives, and questions how they can become cultural conduits.

Bethan Laura Woodはイギリスのデザイナーにして、名門Royal College of Artの卒業生。豊富な経験を活かして生み出された素晴らしいデザインは、これまでに数多くの賞を受賞してきた。彼女の作品には、絶え間ない素材の研究、職人さんとの協力、色彩への繊細な心遣いが反映されている。彼女のプレゼンテーションは、私たちと日常の小物との関わり、そして文化への関わりのヒントを教えてくれるかもしれない。
