SLOW HAND DESIGN Interweaving the Spirit of Thai Craftsmanship

17-22 April 2012

Superstudio Piu, Via Tortona, Milano, Italy

Thailand a land of colorful people and rich culture has also created an identity that differentiates it from other countries.  Their culture nurtures their skilled craftsmanship and handicraft works from a young age.  Objects, created by hand connect the Thai people to their heritage and history but also represent their present as well.

New blood influences the designs of the present and brings the local identity of craftsmanship into their modern industries.

Thailand’s pride of Design Excellence (DeMark) award showcases the craftsmanship and the new design development to reflect the inseparable relations between local creative wisdom and the global context of industries.

The Lotus Star Lamp

 Ayodhya products have been known, for the past three decades, as the company who turns recycled waste into products with taste.  Their first attempt at this process started with turning water-hyacinth river waste into basketries. This was done to develop both a local artisan society and a craft design industry.  Ayodhya now offers a variety of different recycled materials and products for their clients and the the Lotus Star Lamp is one of their latest product collections.  Created from recycled newspaper, the triangular motifs of the lotus inspired modular forms are repeated and gathered into an extendable hexagonal form.  The Lotus Star Lamp follows the repetition of modularity that is found in traditional Thai art and graphics and demonstrates to us that this design has never gone far from it’s Thai roots.
