"PLAY TIME" FURNITURE COLLECTION BY BETHAN LAURA WOOD

14.8.12

Play Time is inspired by an antique Austria bench (1905) in the Nilufar Collection, along with a jointing system developed during Bethan Laura Wood's experimentation with a new range of wooden jewellery, and the variety of surface patterns available in laminates. Bethan wanted to explore the balance, between elegance and play within a design. Also, methods of construction and the hand skills of talented craftsmen form a vital role in the overall aesthetic.






The main focus of the table centres on the tapering hexagonal legs made from Abet laminate and birch ply. These use Corian "tongues" for the jointing systems, and together with the different coloured laminates, the layers of ply and the angles of the hexagon form a strong graphic element. Bethan designed the tabletop pattern by employing the proportions of the off-cuts from making the legs; these create a fan, or sun burst, which reaches out to cradle each leg.
