BAMBOOINA at Chiang Mai Design Week

Appearing at Chiang Mai Design Week 2017, BAMBOOINA curates 10 contemporary Indonesian brands. The designers presented are immersed in developing bamboo products that are functional, can be used by people in everyday lives and are sustainable.

A collaborative effort between Rumah Sanur Creative Hub and Adhi Nugraha, BAMBOOINA means “Contemporary Indonesian Design Objects” and brings to life traditional methods in a modern context.

The display of these products is a reflection of the idea of Transforming Tradition, a way to enable every culture, every society, to flourish based on their own unique roots, using their own sustainable local resources, their history and their references.

In selecting to curate bamboo products, the collaboration focuses on one of Indonesia’s traditional materials and reflects the evolution and design develops in the country. The programme aims to empower bamboo working communities and SMEs, to act as an enable for taking a holistic approach to sustainability in the bamboo sector and to develop a way forward for designers.
