returning for its fifth instalment, wonderfruit aims to further practice and encourage its ambition of eco-living. the 2018 edition, continuing from its past four years, sets to offset its impact on the environment by designing and building structures and experiences. this is all situated within a completely natural environment in the fields at siam country club in thailand, which is bigger than ever before. the result intends to showcase creative sustainable practices and investing in nature.



wonderers can immerse themselves in eco-living whilst surrounded by tropical evergreen forests, pristine lakes, rivers and beaches, and even below shady coconut plantations. taking this a step further, a VR experience, called ‘in the eye of the animal’ by marshmallow laser feast, enables people to wear a wooden headset and traverse familiar forest landscape through the perspective of woodland creatures.



the immersive experiences that will capture the imagination of visitors at wonderfruit 2018 grows even more so, as they celebrate and showcase how sustainable architecture can unite nature and interaction. created by local and international artists, the installations include: mpdstudio’s theatre stage set ashore the site’s scenic waterway; london-based designer ab rogers’ eco pavilion that will host the scratch talks, which, beneath a kaleidoscopic canopy of 100 handmade cotton umbrellas, goers can converse and debate; and the theatre of feasts that places award-winning chefs center stage on a bright kitchen island surrounded by the audience.



the fields of bamboo installations and architecture provide the settings for the music venues. a key highlight is: the dance stage called ‘the quarry’ has been revamped with the concept of a geometric network of flexible foldable panels, made from woven recycled material. the full lineup of famed music acts at wonderfruit 2018 can be found here.



completed with a bath house, silent room for meditation, and a wonder garden for wellness experiences, wonderfruit provides an immersive eco-living experience for all ages. celebrate sustainability with them at siam country club in thailand from december 13-16, here.
