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.

At this years Slow Hand Design Exhibit in Milan at Superstudio Piu, Plato asks you to remember Autumn in New York, by looking at their Autumn Chair design.

Plato’s Autumn chair makes one think of the falling leaves that come every Autumn to New York.  The “leaves” of the chair are crafted from metal and welded into place to create the illusion of this favorite time of the year.  Thai craftsmanship abounds in this visual pleasing and functional chair.
