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 of Paradise Rug Collection

 The Lotus of Paradise or Rafflesia is the name of a rare species of flower that is found in the deep forests of South East Asia.  These lovely flowers represent, in the Paradise Rug Collection by Rapeeleela, the dwindling natural resources of the earth.  The collections purpose is to reflect the idea of conserving nature now.  Rapeeleela came up with a green design concept direction to produce all of their products only from natural Sisal fiber.
