Thais are lucky to live on the land rich with abundant raw material resources waiting to be utilized. However, much of their potentials are yet to be fully discovered. By using creativity and inspiration, we could transform materials into new, exciting products with a lot of added values.

TCDC has invited Thai designers from different fields to select Thai materials from Material ConneXion® Bangkok’s library to experiment with and turn them into product prototypes which are practical and have marketing possibilities. This experiment process is similar to pairing up for a dance. Designers have to go through a number of steps and turns before they find the right solution. However, the challenges posed have become the twist which takes designers down new exciting roads and produce inspiring outcome.

Join us to explore the twist take on Thai materials by five Thai designers how materials turned into products which showcase their distinctive qualities and endless potential.
