All you need is wood – top 12 South East Asian designers

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

What is your favourite material? Mine is undoubtedly wood {of course, we’re talking about solid wood here!}. I love the texture, the smell and the sense of it. Especially when it comes to design, I’m always fascinated by the way designers explore and transform different types of wood into unique pieces, sometimes incredibly intricate, sometimes just simple.
Wood is a fascinating living thing. It shrinks, expands, wears out with time and a wood art designer must keep this in mind when planning out the dimensions of a piece.

But I better let their work speak…

The stools, chairs, tables and shelves by nendo designed for Industry + are made of solid oak, volcanic plaster and hand-woven bamboo rattan. I love the combination of materials and how tribal elements/patterns are elegantly integrated in the whole design. It’s compact, modern and extremely handsome. Don’t you agree?

Wait a second, you haven’t heard of Studio Juju yet? Then have a look and I’m sure you will easily fall in love with this Singaporean based design studio. Led by Timo Wong and Priscilla Lui and working with different types of material, Studio juju definitely sets the design benchmark for the region.
I really love the sophisticated and witty look of their designs. No collection looks like one another and there is always something whimsy and surprising to discover.

Below are other some objects of my desire…

Awesome and funky – Studio 248

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

I’m sure you will agree with me if I say Studio 248 is just a gem! I litterrally LOVE everything created by the trio designers from Bangkok. Each design is provocative and memorable. The combination of different materials makes each design a one-of-a-kind creation, here the cutting edge chair with steel rod and teak wood.

Vito Selma – striving for perfection

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Truly epic is the furniture work of Vito Selma from the Philippines that I discovered on a very nice curated online boutique Wooddesign.
Established in 2006, Vito Selma strives for perfection when exploring shapes, lines and textures that “are often repeated in the earth, the sky and the sea.” Do you simply feel the flow and movement of each table, chair or lighting design you’re looking at?
