Furniture Design, Spatial Design and Installation
2015 – present
I want to share art and design with people so they may enjoy living.
WHERE DO YOU GO, OR WHAT DO YOU DO, WHEN YOU GET STUCK ON A PROJECT?
Go for a jog / to bed / to a bookstore and take a deep breath.
WHAT DESIGN TOOL CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
Motivation without “FEAR”
WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
I would say ‘The Hidden Connections’ which is an installation I completed recently. Within this project I try to share the idea that ‘Everything is Connected.’ By using mirrors that interact with human perceptions and geometry to connect each individual piece, a connection between the reflections in the mirrors and its surroundings are created.
This project was selected by the Singapore Furniture Industries Council (SFIC) for exhibition at SingaPlural Celebrating Design 2017, Singapore Design Week 2017. During the exhibition, I saw many audience members enjoying and interacting with the installation in different ways. Some of them got the message that I was trying to communicate to them.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CREATIVITY?
I think creativity is about creating something without “FEAR.”
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON CURRENTLY?
I am working on a new furniture collection where I am trying to experiment with new surfaces and push the boundaries of furniture design.
IF YOU COULD INVITE ANY CREATIVE OUT FOR COFFEE WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
If I could invite any artist out for coffee, I would like to invite Kamin Lertchaiprasert, artist and founder of 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit because I completely respect his thoughts and his work. I want to discuss his work and life more with him .
