The bold graphic nature of London based Bethan Gray’s latest collaboration with stone specialists, Lapicida artfully underscores the designer’s strongly rooted vision which blends both traditional Welsh culture and craft as well as to the geometric patterns and forms, and use of light found in the East. The table features a sharp herringbone inlay of Carrara and Maquina marble and is accented with brass, offering a warm yet crisp accent to a room. The new collection also features an all marble version of Bethan’s trademark leather Brogue table.
Winner of the prestigious Best British Designer Award 2013, Bethan Gray combines a passion for using luxurious natural materials – leather, marble and solid wood – with an extensive knowledge of craftsmanship and cutting- edge manufacturing technologies. She was first discovered by Tom Dixon in 1998 at the prestigious New Designers show in London and has since earned numerous accolades, including the British Design Guild Mark for Excellence. From bespoke commissions to range of products for Wallpaper* inspired by the spectacular black and white stone configurations found in historical buildings across Europe, Bethan’s collaborations are not only aesthetically beautiful, but are cleverly commercial. In addition to collaborations with Yoo Home and Harrod’s, Bethan Gray Design launched a major new collaboration with leading US furniture and home ware retailer Crate & Barrel in 2013, featuring the ‘Pennie” range of upholstery as well as products for the bedroom, dining, home office, bathroom and lighting.
