Particleis a range of furniture designed during BETHAN WOOD's residency at London’s DESIGN MUSEUM.
Bethan took her inspiration from the Design Museum’s location, at Butlers Wharf, overlooking the River Thames. Investigating the historical usage of the building and the site, she discovered that it had been a banana warehouse, when the Port of London was the main site for importing and exporting all manner of goods to the UK from around the world.
In response, Bethan has created a furniture system based on crates and packaging materials. This range of interlocking and stacking units has been designed to allow for many different uses depending on their combinations.
