DIANE COOPER

Living in Japan, a culture much older than our own, developed within me a love for the
aged and worn surface. The Japanese aesthetic has been a major influence on my work.

This work embodies the concept of seeing beauty in life’s detritus. Materials consisting of used bits and pieces of everyday life, including wood, leather, fiber and metal are often used in the condition in which they are found.

My style of working is intuitive. Each piece takes Its inspiration from the material with which I have chosen to work.

Ranran design, Josep Pla 39 3 1, 08019 Barcelona, Spain

Ran Ran was born out of passion for interior design and taste for the handmade. After eight years of working in the fashion industry at big-name companies like Zara and Diesel, Bethlehem decided to undertake an endeavor of her own and create a signature expression through yarn and found objects. It is here where she found her true calling. Meticulous attention to detail has been given to each piece, which is entirely handmade by Bethlehem at her atelier in Barcelona. Ran Ran is what had affectionately become her father's nickname, representing the sound of the nights when he rode his motorcycle to her mother's home in courting. To signify the same pursuit of love, and impetus we all have to weave together the raw from which we craft our lives, she has chosen it as both an inspiring guiding light and a symbol representing her work. With the label, Bethlehem creates unique, handwoven wall hangings and accessories using the highest quality natural materials. Inspired by nature and her travels around the world, her work has the charm and individuality of the handmade and the vintage feel together with a modern twist.
