As the MRT doors open, I sprint as I can; away from the station till I am finally standing before the doors. I slowly open them and the strong wind of the air conditioner cools my body down. And as I enter the room filled with the art of the past, present and future I realize why I spent so much energy, time and effort to be at this gallery.
I was grateful that this year's NAFA 3D design show, Perfectly Grey, fell on my one week break which enabled me to have my time and freedom to visit the show. The show which took place concurrently at NAFA Lim Hak Tai Gallery and Nation Design Centre saw huge crowds coming forth to witness new innovative ideas and professional craftsman work produced by my talented juniors and seniors.
For those who were unable to make it, here are a few pictures I had taken during my visit at the exhibition.
Enjoy and have a good weekend! :)

One year have already passed and IFFS 2014 is here once again! This year the trade fair is much smaller as compared to last year's trade fair. But.... the size do not matter as 2014's trade fair was much more better than 2013's trade fair. Based on the layout and design items that were exhibited there.
Came across this booth, the Designers Field. Their booth had gotten bigger as compared to the past year in IFFS. Designers Field is a Thai/Danish company located in Bangkok.They design, source and produce home interior- and furniture products.
I really love their products, especially those lightings and home decorative products.
I am sure you will love them as much as I do! Take a look at their product in the website,
The Green Pavilion brings the attention to the concept of sustainability in the business environment, in the form of a “Garden”. It will be a key attraction to inspire and provoke the thinking process of moving towards sustainability in businesses.

Here are the platform exhibition by some of the schools. Its much more interesting as compared to 2013's platform exhibition. Their spaces were much more open compared to the previous years allowing more products and furnitures to be placed in a tight space. I enjoyed walking around looking at what new upcoming designers have created as well as what might be the new furniture trends.

And of course, our alumni school. Their concept this year was much more playful and brings back memories to the childhood times. I think the product students did a great job with their finishing as it was much better compared to last year's batch. Good job and keep it up!
|Matter & Matter
Stepped into Studio248' booth, I was immediately attracted to the quirky and lovely products. Some of their items are also being sold by Air Division, like the shelf you saw in the picture above.
Take a look at the lamps hanging on the wall, it was i think casted in metal and the front cover can be easily removed by just pulling it off as they were attached on by magnets. So it will simply attach back firmly when you place it back. I called it the "Iron Man lamp". HAHAHA...

Our most favorable piece in the booth was the Three-legged magazine table that can be
used as a side table as well. This really cute and unique piece that can be dismantled and flat
packed. Golf a humble designer from Thailand was the one who designed this magazine
table, you can view more of his designs at Golf-JC.

Went on the first day of Maison & Objet, it was pretty crowded in the afternoon. Unfortunately I wasn't able to speak to any of the designers because I went during the working hours with a few of my colleagues, and was kind of rush. So I could only snapped some of the designs that caught my attention.

The first booth that caught my attention. Thai Showcase.
|In Clay Studio Pottery
The hand-thrown ceramics made from clay soils and glazes native to Chiang Mai. The bottle caps were made out of leather, which made the collection look more interesting.
Visit Thai Showcase to find out more of their products.
