8 Thai Designs we Love at the Bangkok International Houseware Fair

This year’s edition of the Bangkok International Houseware Fair proved that while Thai designers are getting savvier with catering to global trends, the country’s design scene is still producing a range of made-in-Thailand pieces that offer a wide spectrum of aesthetics. Amongst the traditional dark wood tables, streamlined bent metal chairs, minimalistic tableware, and outlandish home accessories, we’ve gathered some of our top finds here…  

1. Textile designer Sarinya Limthongtip takes traditional symbols of Thai culture and translates them into a modern language for her fabrics.

2. Porcelain tableware by Ceras Imply that resemble hammered metal.

3. An elegant alternative to a fruit bowl, this stand by Bangkok Siam Products offers a minimal and stylish way to display fruits at home. 

4. This sculptural lighting by Thai designer Nopparat Chaiwong was inspired by the fishing nets used by the villagers in his hometown of Phetburi. 

5. We also saw space saving elements being worked subtly into the furniture designs, just like the extra table surface this Hari Ora dining table offers with its slide-out panel.

6. Kiddee Design’s modular planters allow you to customise a vertical green wall of any size.

7. Merge a wall clock and calendar into one with this minimal design by Everyday.

8. Standing out amongst the sea of wooden furniture designs is PDM Brand and its uber contemporary set of metal furniture.
