Bethan Laura Wood’s Playtime Collection includes high and low stackable tables that reflect the designer’s kaleidoscopic identity, rich in symbolic and material stratifications that explore the boundaries between the controlled elegance of classical art and the effortless beauty of nature. The pieces offer multipurpose functionality through an endless variety of configurations. The intricate marquetry patterns were produced with laminates from Italian laminate producer Abet Laminati—a signature material in Wood’s practice.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Wood is a London-based designer known for her distinct approach to materials, color, and pattern. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Wellcome Collection, and Abet Laminati Museum.
