Official description

Ten groups of designers in Thailand will showcase 20 armchairs in various designs during the "Anonymous Chair Exhibition" which will be held as part of the "Chiang Mai Design Week 2016" at Thapae East in Chiang Mai from Dec 3-11.

The idea for the exhibition was initiated by three groups of furniture designers — Satawat, Teerapoj Teerapas and Ease Studio — who wish to promote an awareness on the value of design products. This time the focus is on Thai traditional rounded armchairs which now have quite different designs and are known by different terms, such as the tank chair, grandpa's chair, Lanna chair, applied chair and coffee shop chair.

Ten groups of designers in Thailand will showcase 20 armchairs in various designs during the "Anonymous Chair Exhibition" which will be held as part of the "Chiang Mai Design Week 2016" at Thapae East in Chiang Mai from Dec 3-11.

The idea for the exhibition was initiated by three groups of furniture designers — Satawat, Teerapoj Teerapas and Ease Studio — who wish to promote an awareness on the value of design products. This time the focus is on Thai traditional rounded armchairs which now have quite different designs and are known by different terms, such as the tank chair, grandpa's chair, Lanna chair, applied chair and coffee shop chair.

They have joined hands with three more designer teams and five more groups of designers and architects from Chiang Mai to reinterpret the design of the original rounded armchair, or "anonymous chair", and create new ones using the materials of their own choice.

The purpose is to show to visitors how independent thoughts and creative expression are important for designing and to further develop local designers' creativity to produce products with uniquely Thai contemporary styles.
