Lookbox Living 52 – July/August 2017

“OBJECTS FOR THE HOME: Furniture and their complements create an alluring environment for sure but kitting up your place with original, iconic furniture might cost you the moon. With designer furniture, you get what you pay for, but for those on a budget, there are always alternative, original products you can consider. We’ve culled some of the best design options with decent price tags so that you have more money to devote to other pursuits in life.

’60s Power: Arflex’s Boborelax modular seating systems designed by Cini Boeri have an iconic ’60s aesthetic that’s still relevant today. If you want something akin to its groovy shape, look out for SoftRock Living’s Bohemian Lounger that is comfy and plush.”

The Strait Times – July 8, 2017

“Other Thai brands sold here include Qualy, an award-winning home accessories and kitchenware brand that is known for its witty designs; and Pana Objects, which makes simple and beautiful wooden pieces such as stationery holders.

Retailers say Thai designs are original, well-crafted and often utilise traditional techniques and materials.

Mr Alvin Tan, 34, owner of Bibliotek Design Store, says: “Thai brands can hold their own in the world of design. They have a seamless ability to combine modern aesthetics with traditional crafts such as woodworking and embroidery.”

Mr Shane Low, 35, a director at Becheras Holdings, which is the sole distributor of Qualy and Pana Objects, says: “What you are paying for is uniqueness. You can be proud that your door stopper or sponge holder is a conversation piece, unlike the many $2 door stoppers in your neighbours’ homes.””

Interview with Teerachai, Design Director of Qualy Design:

1.       In this era, what do you look out for when designing stationery?

“The first thing when designing a stationary product is the design. Imagine walking into a stationery store or a stationery section, if your design does not stand out or wow the customer they would just walk pass it. After attracting their attention your product have meet their expectation. For example the stationery that they are looking for need to have great design and WORK as well .

2.       Is there a particular kind of design or tagline (eg “ideas happen everywhere” or other slogan) that appeals to the consumers?

“Inspirations”. Our brand concept is concerning the future of our planet and how we choose to act in our daily life. After the customer buys our product we don’t want it to stop there. We want the product to carry on the message and want the customer to forward that message to their close one. For example, “The Last Log” (Pencil Sharpener) sends a message that we should be very careful on what we are consuming and we should consume in just the right amount.

3.       What do you hope to give consumers through his design?

We want our customers to be happy and to receive a great experience when using our products. With every product, we try to add a story behind it, and we hope the customer feels that he or she is part of the story.

Sob.” – On the Log & Roll paper towel holder, available here.

doob® revels in some local pride!Bean There, Done That?

“Bean Bags? Aren’t they lumpy sacks that try to pass off as furniture, favoured by students who can’t afford actual chairs? Well, you haven’t met doob bean bags. Designed by Singaporeans for Singaporeans (the dimensions and materials used are suitable for local sizes and our tropical weather), these bean bags are chic and, some say, annoyingly comfortable. We’re most impressed by their ingenious versatility – the large doobsta’ can transform from an armchair to a recliner with a few well-placed pats. At $199, the doodad doesn’t come cheap, so you can be sure that the doobsta’s many fans love its bean bag-ness (and not ‘cos they can’t afford a real couch). doob® Bean Bags come in other shapes and sizes, and are good for lounging in, watching TV on, and for feeling like you’re young and carefree again.”- Singa-more, please! 8 Days, Jan 2012 issue
