Nilufar Gallery

Bethan Laura Wood's Temple Oil Lamps were inspired by Japanese interlocking constructions, graphic shapes found in classic 1950s fabrics, and the world of model engineering. Wood became fascinated with the micro-screws and miniature skills used to create models of working trains, steam engines, cams and pulleys. The oil lamps that resulted from this investigation exist on a scale somewhere between jewelry and furniture.

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.
