If you are a sucker for contemporary design and decor, you’ll definitely love this furniture collection, which features contemporary design but is made using traditional Thai techniques.
Bangkok-based THINKK Studio has worked with Thai manufacturers and craftsmen to create a collection of contemporary furniture made using traditional techniques and materials like bamboo and wicker. The series consists of nine furniture and homeware items: 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 from fluted glass, overlaid with a gradient color film then sealed with another clear layer of glass. There is also a mobile lamp that takes its cues from an ancient bamboo lantern found across Asia. Featuring a woven bamboo exterior and wireless lamp technology, the product can be turned on and off with the clap of a hand.
The Margin mirror has a round shape with a slight gradient, which is achieved by laminating a regular mirror with a layer that is printed in halftone. There’s a wooden stool and bench duo that feature steel leg supports. These are made by folding a steel sheet 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. Composed of natural woven rattan, it is made in the style of a traditional New Year’s hamper in Thailand. The Pole coat stand is composed of a single steel stand. Its base serves as a shoe and umbrella rack while the upper rail functions as a place to hang scarves, headwear and coats.
