Thailand a land of colorful people and rich culture has also created an identity that differentiates it from other countries. Their culture nurtures their skilled craftsmanship and handicraft works from a young age. Objects, created by hand connect the Thai people to their heritage and history but also represent their present as well.
New blood influences the designs of the present and brings the local identity of craftsmanship into their modern industries.
Thailand’s pride of Design Excellence (DeMark) award showcases the craftsmanship and the new design development to reflect the inseparable relations between local creative wisdom and the global context of industries.
Lighting up in the dark
The Lanna culture can be dated back to 700 years ago when it flourished and the center of it was Chiangmai, which had become powerful in the South East Asian region.
Prempracha, renowned among ceramists for its established design in the Northern Chiangmai province, attempts a further step into the paradigm shift of ceramic industries occurring during the last three decades. The Lanna vase collection is one of the examples that reflect the attitude of shifting traditional Lanna motifs and colors and bringing in a more modern look and feel to the products along with a functionality that is practical.
