The New Thai Style
Laurence King Publishing, 2016
Thai Style is renowned throughout the world for its grace, form and colours, reflecting wider national culture. Whether pavilion-style architecture, elegant interior designs, innovative use of textiles and materials, Thai style manages to combine cultural traditions with skilled craftsmanship and modern interpretations. These design forms have evolved into a 21st century paragon of design practice and are universally admired. Contemporary Thai Style — one that merges ancient practices with modern fashions, graphics and technologies is what this book seeks to showcase.
A number of carefully selected homes, resorts, hotels and residences from the north, through Bangkok to the islands in the south are featured in New Thai Style – a cornucopia of all that is new and exciting in confident, thrusting Thailand’s design scene. Work from established and emerging architects and designers are featured as international culture vultures and collectors, hot hoteliers and developers lead the way with a 21st-Century aesthetic, confident and contemporary, yet still distinctly Thai.
