at Bangkok Design Week 2019

The feeling of owning an object is obtained from the relationship between the owner and the particular object. Regardless of how the person has become the owner of the object; given or created by oneself.
Ownership brings the feeling of belonging. It also leads to showing signs which indicate status, reflect individuality and reveal the context-of-use. This makes the object unique in itself.

This time, we narrate the relationship between the craftsmen from furniture factories and their workspaces; how they reflect the context-of-use, materials and virtuosity. The craftsmen and the workspaces are the crucial components in the creation and delivery of exceptional products to the market. There are numbers of times in which some details on specific products are developed by these craftsmen. Without them, creations from designers would not be completed. Through the 50 seats exhibited in this exhibition, we would like to introduce the expertise, importance of the ‘designers’ who have never defined themselves as ‘designers’.

FOUND-WOOD PROJECT BY o-d-a, exhibited at tcdc


Found-Wood Working Project invited 20 leading creators to join a field workshop that explored discarded wood found in Nangrong District, Burirum Province. Each participant then selected one piece of “found wood” as a starting material to create a design work of their choice. 
This project shifts the basic concept of working with processed wood into working with wood that can be found in natural setting. And the “Found-Wood Working Project” exhibition aims to demonstrate the working process, widen the audience’s creative frame and perspective, and encourage them to experiments with the potential and inherent beauty of found wood as well as other scrap materials around us.
