Low Tech can be smart and fun
& collect
A curated collection and workshop on handmade and sustainable objects, made in northern Thailand and Laos from local materials. These objects, made after traditional designs, smartly utilize the properties of natural materials in their method of making. The wooden headrest is carved from one single piece of wood, creating two interlocking parts which can be folded. The reed basket is flexible and self-closing, obtaining its functionality from the way the reed strips are bent and assembled. Mario Gagliardi 2013.
