Philippines has many beautiful places to boast for, delicacies worth trying and friendly-industrious people who are something to be proud of. One of them is renowned Filipino furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
The work of this multi-awarded designer can be seen in movies, in the home of the famous Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, in the most luxurious hotels in the world, like Paris, Caribbean and London. I have also seen a yellow colored chair (like above picture) on the set of well known talk-show host and actress Ms. Kris Aquino.
Mr. Cobonpue quoted that his creative work comes from nature and locally-sourced materials in Cebu like ratan and bamboos, buri and abaca. This ideas was turned into beautiful collection of furniture that will truly make anyone wish to have one. No wonder why he had won numerous awards because of his wide ranging designs.
This Bloom, is his latest collection of lounge chairs sculpted by hundreds of fine running stitches radiating from the center of the seat creating a subtle textural feel. An interesting piece from an interesting designer. Truly Filipino, truly world class.
I have always been amazed of green designs and having this in my collection would be a dream come true.
