Local Essence Exhibition in Bangkok














One of the courses that I was teaching in the past six months at Raffles International College in Bangkok has designed the Local Essence exhibition. It will be launched at TCDC design institute in Bangkok later this week and actually mark the end of my guest lecturing, before heading back to European soil in April.

This exhibition is a collaboration between Raffles Design College, the Material Connexion Bangkok (MC) and Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) to enhance the potentials of locally produced materials by investigating and discovering their qualities. The aim is to communicate these materials as an exhibition to the public, through design projects based on research and materials chosen by the students. Fashion Design, Product Design and Interior Design students together with Brit Leissler (Lecturer), Guiseppe Guerriero (Lecturer) and Jett Pisate Virangkabutra (Product Design’s Program Director) investigated innovative applications of Thai materials within the Material Connexion library.

The opening is on Thursday, 31. March 2011 from 18:00 to 21:00 at Material Connexion | TCDC (6th Floor of the Emporium Shopping Complex, 622 Sukhumvit 24, Bangkok).

So, if you are in Bangkok, drop by to enjoy some free drinks and canapes while observing interesting design investigations on Thai local materials.
