When the opportunity to collaborate with Jim Thompson, a leader in silk design from Thailand arise, we chose to work with the ARCHIPELAGO collection to create a collection of outdoor furnitures that represents both of our brands’ ethos in preserving craft.

ARCHIPELAGO collection translates patterns and colors gathered from islands around the globe into durable, lightfast and softly textured weaves that are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Ikat design tightly woven, basket weaves and chunky textures offer a natural look and a casual sensibility that's ideal for creating relaxed environments.

We are interested in patterns that take us back to the basics of weaving, such as the simple weave pattern or the Mudmee pattern that most Thais are familiar with. With the legacy of preserving textiles, Jim Thompson had brought forward technology and innovations and were able to develop ordinary fabrics into that which is suitable for outdoor use. In return, we wanted to create a collection of chairs which invites people to rethink and pay more attention to material developments from the raw and virgin state to its end use in order to help preserve craft wisdom. At the same time, the collection hopes to invite the audience to appreciate beauty that is simple and sincere.

For this collaboration, Kittakhon chose to design a body of work that reacts directly to the fabric collection from Jim Thomson by letting the chair serve to emphasize the feelings conveyed by the fabric.

The Pandan chair was designed and chosen to reflect the beauty of the plain and basic weave pattern and the elements of light and shadow that naturally arise from weaving. The Pandan highlights and communicates, the humans and the humanness in handicraft as well as reflecting comfort and relaxation. We choose to take the fabric pattern and expand it in the seating structure through the weaving of our recycled plastic strips. Using bold colors and line work to bring the contemporary essence into the design.

The Mudjai chair, which uses the Ikat patterned fabric, reflects the beauty of the woven leg pattern that combines opacity and transparency. When the chair is set outdoor, the light and shadow created by the pattern also create another dimension in the Ikat pattern.

Finally, the Takpha chair was paired with a collection of striped fabrics that are commonly found in various cultures. Images of sarongs or common loincloth often used for multipurpose in rural area and hung in workshops comes to mind when creating this set of chairs. It reflects the happiness and positivity of living life as well as represents the identity of the craftsman behind the work itself.
