An Exhibition by Material ConneXion® Bangkok

Nowadays, countries around the world are searching for new ways to make the most of raw agricultural materials such as rice, banana, coconut, and bark. By applying new idea with simple manufacturing process, agricultural leftovers can be turned into new products which are different from existing ones in terms of application. Who would believe that simple coconut shell mosaic wall panels, made by cutting coconut shell into square pieces and arranging them together on a panel, would make a lot more profit than the more complicated and time-consuming coconut shell dolls?

This exhibition brings you green materials from countries across the globe which demonstrate the potential of raw materials from nature. These abundant materials can be easily developed into products with international standards while answering to the needs of different industries. They point out the easy ways to add value to agricultural leftovers while retaining their environmentally friendly property.

Let’s explore and spark creative ideas together in order to bring ordinary materials to the global market using genuine creativity and technology combined with cultural identity and international standards.

Postscript: The bamboo structure of the exhibition “Materials from Nature” was made by villagers in the district of Bang Pahan in Ayutthaya and the district of Panatnikhom in Chonburi. It demonstrates a strong dedication of TCDC and Material Connexion® Bangkok to encourage Thai people to tap into limitless potential of materials and local crafts, which are part of the rich intellectual capital of the country.
