Push the potential of Thai materials in collaborations between manufactures and designers to co-create practical and marketable products.

Free Admission

The exhibition “The Cooperation II” by Material ConneXion® Bangkok reveals the working process behind an 8-month collaborative project which paired 4 material manufacturers with 4 designers. Their close collaboration entailed not only an exchanging of knowledge and experience between each pair, but also a cross-pollination of ideas among other participants in every step of the project: from materials research, experiment and prototyping development to creating product prototypes. The objective was to develop practical products with commercial and industrial-scale production viability that demonstrate the new potential of “material” in different aspects.
