Bethan has created "Luna" landscape, a room for dreaming.
The pieces designed exclusively for Nilufar Gallery focus on the beauty and qualities found in particular materials.
Working with the talents of a highly skilled glass Artisan, and the surfaces of the the city, they play with the with both the notions of mass production and the hand made.
The pieces are designed to spark the imagination, to create distance through
detail and a unique space, so that the mind may slow and dream.
'Luna landscape' showcases Bethan's new limited addition lighting range 'Totem'& limited series landscape furniture 'Moon Rock'.

D+A will be presenting some thirty design objects realized during a two-month workshop that offered the possibility for an exchange of ideas between young internationally-known designers and a group of ten firms of artisans during the course of the AAA project for discovering new artisans (www.nuovoartigiano.it). The objects were developed by Asprostudio, Lucia Massari, Bethan Laura Wood, Zaven, Matteo Zorzenoni, Silke De Vivo, Andrea Magnani (Resign), Merel Karhof, Luca Mathia Bertoncello, Alberto Caiola, Fabien Cappello, and Matteo Cibic as an expression of national and international emergent creativity, together with ten artisans from various sectors ranging from marble to paper, gold, glass, plexiglas, and ceramics: Antonio Bonaldi, Pietro Viero (Myver), Eugenio Lovato, Ermenegildo Sartori, Arduino Zappaterra (Ardovari), Sergio Paolin (Arbos), Cesare and Vania Sartori, Luca Bonato (Fusina), Bosa and Nereo Sella (KGN).
