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.

Part of the Slow Hand Design Exhibit in Milan was Thai manufacturer, Bua Bhat who exhibited their "stitches of love, the Falls Bedcover and their pebble rugs.

Bua Bhat is known for their ability to recycle the waste of other products and end up turning it into lovely, unique home accessories.  The long story of tattered rug interweaving goes back to the owner of Bua Bhat’s mother’s generation whose family business was textile selling.  The daughter’s generation, the owner of Bua Bhat, found that recycling the textiles that are left over on a paper roll could create beautiful and functional products, such as a floor rug or “The Falls” bed covers and pebble rugs.
