If you are a fan of contemporary design and decor, you will love this collection of furniture that features contemporary design but is made using traditional Thai techniques.
Bangkok-based THINKK Studio has partnered with Thai manufacturers and artisans to create a collection of contemporary furniture made using traditional techniques and materials such as bamboo and wicker. The series consists of nine pieces of furniture and housewares: a side table, a mobile lantern, a mirror, a stool, a bench, a plant stand, a fruit tray, a coat stand and a selection of vases.
An oval side table is made of fluted glass that is coated with a gradient film and then sealed with another layer of clear glass. There is also a mobile lamp that is based on an old bamboo lantern found across Asia. With a woven bamboo exterior and wireless lamp technology, the product can be turned on and off with a handshake.
The edge mirror has a round shape with a slight slope, which is achieved by laminating a normal mirror with a layer printed in halftone. There is a duo consisting of a wooden stool and a bench with steel leg rests. These are made by folding a sheet of steel into a U shape and reinforcing it with a flat bar.
Cover Up is a plant stand that is available in three sizes and two heights. It is made from naturally woven rattan and is made in the style of a traditional New Year’s basket in Thailand. The Pole Coat Stand consists of a single steel stand. The base serves as a shoe and umbrella holder, while the top rail serves as a place to hang scarves, headgear, and coats.
