During the London Design Festival, Italian brand Moroso presented at their Clerkenwell showroom new furniture and textiles by Bethan Laura Wood. The exhibition, entitled Mono Mania Mexico, was a dramatic display that filled the two-story showroom which was the perfect way for it to make its UK debut. The work brings Wood’s trips to Mexico to life through bold colors and expressive patterns, most inspired by the stained glass windows found in the new basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Her vision of that building, along with a nod to the embroidery from traditional Otomi textiles, led to the vibrant series that was unveiled.
