Featuring interactive population pyramids that visualize the velocity Thailand is becoming an “aging society” in comparison to the world and six other nations representing different society types. Generational groups are also shown parallel to the growing pyramids. This project is our attempt to present statistical data in a way that viewers can easily relate to.

A new exhibition on aging society our studio was working on with Thailand Creative and Design Center is now open to public.

We would like to thank TCDC for this opportunity. For four straight months, we had a good experience collaborating on this important yet challenging topic with a long list of talented teams and artists that are involved in this project.

If you are in Bangkok and have some free time, please stop by and help us build an ecology that will fit a new type of society the world will soon experience.

Pâtisserie Design

December 12th, 2015

Design of a new family-owned homemade pâtisserie on Sukhumvit 49 in Bangkok. Our intent is to create a simple and clean space that supports the aroma of its main products – freshly-baked bread, pastries, and teas.

The space is renovated from a shophouse that once housed a pub and a Ramen restaurant. The renovation is underway and, hopefully, complete by the end of January 2016.

Here are the images of “Thai Rise” exhibition catalog designed by our studio. The main design feature includes key visual design inspired by the diverseness in Thai folk culture. The catalog cover comes in five colors.

The exhibition is open to public at Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 until this Sunday, October 18, 2015.

Hi there. If you are in Bangkok on August 22 & 23, we’d like to extend an invitation to join our 2-day creative workshop, “Fuzzy City,” hosted by TCDC (Thailand Creative & Design Center.)

About “Fuzzy City”:

Design is not always about “right” or “wrong” especially when it involves an interaction with a large, diverse crowd. Using fuzzy logic-based approach to create design scenarios for Bangkok public spaces will help explore ambiguous relationship among humans, objects, and environment.

Date/Time: August 22-23, 2015 | 10:30 – 16:00
Place: Workshop Room, TCDC, 5th Floor, The Emporium
Number of Participants: 15

Studio Aeroplane’s “Fuzzy City” will be one of thirty-nine workshops organized by TCDC’s Creative Space Workshop this August. For more details please visit Creativities Unfold website.

Around this time last year we were traveling in the Central part of Myanmar – from Mandalay to Bagan to Inle Lake. Hopping from town to town via different modes of transportation. We did, of course, flew in to Mandalay from Bangkok. The flight only takes two hours.

From Mandalay to Bagan, we decided to take a 10-hour slow (real slow) cruise down the Ayeyarwady River. The scenery, I find, was fresh and pure especially since we are from Thailand where it is getting more and more difficult to find a place untainted by over-development and the excessive use of cement. There, we saw hundreds of white and gold pagodas popping up in the skyline of just greenery and rice fields. However, taking a cruise in July was a bit cruel due to the heat. The month was a low season and there weren’t many cruise lines operating as well. Once in Bagan, it was biking everywhere. There were hundreds of trails we took to hop from one pagoda to the next.

From Bagan to Inle Lake we took an 8-hour bus ride. Most passengers on the bus from Bagan were tourists. Along the way we stopped from hamlet to hamlet to pick up more passengers who were mostly locals. Low plastic stools were added in the middle aisle so everyone could sit down. I don’t remember exactly if the stools were brought in by the passengers or were provided on the bus.

Unexpectedly, taking the bus was a nice choice because it drove through Myanmar Highlands, which was breathtaking. The air was clean and fresh – a sharp contrast from the arid Bagan. Some people got off in Kalaw to join a 4-5-day trek through the woods to Inle Lake. We didn’t know about this but we’ll definitely do it the next time we visit the region.

We returned to Mandalay on a 45-min flight. It was fine although I would have preferred a bus ride. It gave us some time to explore Mandalay. Besides the beautiful wooden temples, what we loved and not miss very much was the local foods. Wish I knew where to find Mandalay foods in Bangkok.
