ORNATE – BETHAN LAURA WOOD @Nilufar Gallery,
Via Della Spiga 32, Milano
From 5 September to 27 November 2021,
ALPI takes part in a brand new project which opens on the occasion of Milan Design Week: “Ornate” is Bethan Laura Wood's solo show for Nilufar Gallery designed to celebrate ten years of collaboration between the English designer and gallery owner Nina Yashar. The Nilufar Gallery in via della Spiga has always aimed at exhibiting works by masters of the modern and contemporary design world, becoming a reference point for design lovers. In this space Bethan Laura Wood, an internationally renowned British designer, proposes boudoir pieces and objects found inside, associating them with historical works selected by Nina Yashar.
The Meisen cabinet and desk, designed by Bethan Laura Wood, have been enriched with a bespoke Alpi wood, characterized by and undulating and colourful texture. The natural grain of the wood, which emphasises the edges of the waves of colour, recalls the vibrant patterns of the Ikat weave used to produce the Meisen fabric.
