Born in Thailand

Design research project in collaboration with Tourism Authority of Thailand.

This project seeks to explore Thai crafts from a design point of view, understand the history, techniques and raw materials and to design new products with a strong identity, suitable for international markets.

BorninThailand comes from a very simple concept. The objects, in particular, the handmade ones, are not made, but they born. They born from the earth, in the form of raw materials and from the skilled hands of the artisans who shape it. We are here in Thailand to know the history and tradition behind every single gesture, to learn, steal with our eyes and document processes that are too often lost. We want to share our modest knowledge and vision of design with them and create together a family of products that can tell their story and the route we are travelling together.
