Experiencing Life as an Art
is the Ultimate Luxury
Our name speaks of our identity and our inspiration.
Beatrice Wood was an artist, craftsperson, writer, humanitarian and style icon. Later in life, she was known as "Beato", but as a young artist and friend of leading figures in contemporary art and culture - Marcel Duchamp, Isadora Duncan, Constantin Brancusi, and numerous others - she was known as "Bea". She emerged on the art scene at a time when the art world was in a period of tremendous growth and change - and was an agent in its reinvention.
Today, young artists and designers work together in Beatrice Wood’s home and studio, located on a mountaintop near Ojai - a small California town with an equally rich history and spirit. The works present an intersection of life and art, a reinterpretation of luxury, fashion, and design, befitting a New Civilization.
