Florian Kainz: Coming from a background of versatile interests and curiosity, as a designer, Florian Kainz follows a thinking process that tries to include the whole picture of the human-product interaction. In the core of the creation process, he believes, are always a craving for innovation, meaning and honest storytelling to let the user enjoy and remember objects in a natural way. Of course this does not leave out his passion for starting with a blank sheet of paper only to fill dozens of them with quick scribbles and detailed form proposals.

Supaluck Benyasam: Born in Bangkok, living in London, my full name is Supaluck Benyasarn. Had trained in Architecture School before, I am interested in the parallels between fashion and architecture for such a long time. Fashion and architecture share the design discipline based on human body in relation to space, volume, and movement. I see “weaving” as one of the architectonic process. Plaiting warp and weft together in orthodox combination can create spatial, complex in a single surfaces.
