Responsible Lifestyle Products Showcased in Chiang Mai Design Week 2016, Thailand
Chiang Mai Design Week 2016 presents Wonderground, a curated exhibition of responsible lifestyle products that represent the richness of sustainable products from the ASEAN region.
Not just an exhibition of products, Wonderground literally means ‘beauty grounded to the earth’, a theme which is reflected in the selection of designers whose work is showcased. It is about a creative exploration and experimentation, products with aesthetic design, function and quality produced through a process that integrates community development and environmental awareness.
Wonderground is a an experimental laboratory for developing and learning about sustainable design, while bringing together a network of designers and artists who collaborate with local artisans and small-to-medium-enterprises to create ‘responsible lifestyle products’.
‘Responsible lifestyle’ encompasses products that use organic materials, with production processes based on fair trade and ethical principles, avoiding excessive use and production of carbon.
Wonderground is beyond an exhibition title and theme — it is positioned to become a unique space for ongoing exchange on developing responsible lifestyle products, and the creation of a better society, environment and economy for our region and the planet.
