Month of Design Celebrating 50 years of the Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University
Be it a product designer who converted useless water hyacinth into award-winning furniture, an internationally prominent fashion designer, a top-grossing film director or a world-renowned advertising creative – they all graduated from the Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University.
‘Thai modern design’ traces its history back to the period of the ‘Father of Thai Design’ HRH Prince Narissaranuwaddhiwongse, who cleverly combined Western design methodology with Thai tradition, to the establishment of Thailand’s first school of modern design – the Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University; compelling to seek the balance between Thai-ness and foreign influences at first, now Thai designers have developed and established their unique perspectives.
Experience the works and visions of more than 30 foremost designers who have been the driving force behind Thai modern design, including interior design, product design, print media, film, animation, advertising, as well as fashion, textiles and jewellery in “Explorations in Thai Modern Design”, a collaboration between the Alumni Association and the ‘50th Anniversary of the Faculty of Decorative Arts’ Implementing Committee.
