Mono Mania Mexico exhibition seen in London for the first time

17-21 September 2018

Moroso’s London showroom unveils an exhibition entitled Mono Mania Mexico with new furniture and textiles by Bethan Laura Wood. Seen for the first time in the UK, the exhibition will highlight the creativity and dynamic character of Moroso to its fullest with a dramatic installation and special events for London Design Festival 2018.

Bethan’s trips to Mexico were her first taste of Latin America’s hot palette of colour and pattern; that sensory experience distilled into an obsession with the stained-glass windows of the new basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Bethan’s interpretation of this amazing building has led to a series of works that subtly reference the craft of embroidery from traditional Otomi textiles.

On show will be new fabrics, furniture and rugs (in collaboration with Golran) designed by Bethan Laura Wood for Moroso. Italian textile house Limonta has partnered with Moroso to produce this exclusive range. Visitors are invited to experience a vibrant and animated display of Mexican themed colour, textures, textiles and furniture applications.

Moroso is part of Clerkenwell Design Quarter

Moroso, 7-15 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1R 4SP

Opening times: Monday 17 – Friday 21 September, 09:00-18:00
