Designer Bethan Laura Wood, together with maker and collector Anna Lomax, talk to ICA Executive Director Gregor Muir about the inspirations behind their distinct approaches to design and making.
Designer Bethan Laura Wood completed her studies in 2009, graduating from the Royal College of Art where she studied under Jurgen Bey and Martino Gamper. As a collector herself, Wood's work springs from an interest in the connections we make with the objects that surround us every day.
By re-contextualising elements from existing, everyday objects, combined with research into the constituent elements of a modern city, Wood creates new products which rediscover, explore and celebrate different attributes and aspects of the 'mundane'.
Maker and collector Anna Lomax currently works in East London, having graduated from Brighton University in Illustration in 2007. Fascinated by the bizarre, pop-culture, folk art, pound shops and other peoples junk, intrigued by inventions, colour, movement and scale, Lomax works within the field of art direction and set design from small scale still life through to large scale installation using a range of media for varied clients.
