Sublime design by Bethan Laura Wood

Recently featured on the web were designs by Bethan Laura Wood. Not only is her work thoughtful and aesthetically beautiful but her ideas are well worth noting. She has developed a quiet understated(ness) that stands out from the rest.

For example:

Stain
is a set of a teacups designed to improve through use. This project examines the assumption that use is damaging to a product (For example, scratches on an iPod).

The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. Over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea.

I love these, I hope you do too.

While you’re there have a look at Umbrella – also a simple idea but excellent execution.
