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.

 One of the Thai companies featured at this years SLOW HAND DESIGN exhibition this April 17th through the 22 at Superstudio Piu in Milan Italy was PALAZZO.   Palazzo introduced their Kanom -t chair whose slogan was, “Pampering the world with paper Kanom-t chair.”  For many decades, Palazzo has been inventing new materials for it’s furniture production including the newly developed and discovered interwoven paper pulp material produced from recycled printing paper that is bleached and dyed with natural color pigments.

 The Kanom-t chair’s name derives from a Thai coconut cream cake packed in banana leaves.  The chair’s elongated banana wraps inspire the look and theme of the piece but  this chair is also fully functional and is adapted for seating comfort.
