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.

 Do you believe that elephants can help save the world and its environment?  Zenith, a Thai manufacturer does and has proven it by using the elephant’s dung to form paper that is di-cut into pieces. The pieces are then connected to form many different structures and functions ranging from partitions to lamp posts.  The results bring forth products that are lovely to look at and are a witty way of recycling nature into valuable paper.
