PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The material sourcing in Philippines is a big challenges for us, as we are not familiar with the local supplier and market, especially when the contractor submitting some material which are not our intent, so we tried to search the material, furniture, sanitary etc. in the internet, and also the search it in the industrial area, shopping mall by ourselves. The lack of material in the site is a big issue, so we have come up with different design at the site to solve the material problem. Moreover, the continuity design languages with the exterior and interior is a successful outcome, as we form the furniture design with the famous local designer, and explore the possibilities of furniture design.
