thai design firm deesawat has displayed their latest outdoor lounge furniture collection at IFFS, the international furniture fair singapore and TIFF, thailand’s international furniture fair held in bangkok from march 14th – 18th of 2012. the three pieces of by zero first design each possess a wide base paired with an elongated and tapered backrest. the unique silhouette of the series ultimately informs collection’s name – ‘the bottle’. the light wood lounge furniture ensemble evokes the shape of a bottle partially obscured from view, as if resting in the sand of the beaches familiar to the designers. the inviting patio pieces are comprised of a large lounge seat and two relaxed chairs handcrafted from sustainable, plantation-grown or reclaimed teak. the wood-formed backrest of the largest unit encompasses more than half of the thick circular seat, realizing a sheltering space from arched timber beams which seem to grow from the base of the unit until joined in a small circle several feet above the center of the lounge chair. the two smaller components of the eco-friendly series are encircled by struts which decrease in size at various lengths from the highest point on the right until the lowest point on the left side.

deesawat  is one of the leaders of the flourishing wood industry in thailand as the company was founded in 1972 and located in the laksi area of bangkok. the organization has secured 30,000 sqm of production spaces with over 300 skilled workers, and possesses it’s own wood working facilities in order to ensure work of the finest craftsmanship and highest precision. deesawat is known as a company which specializes in saw milling and wood flooring but has now diversified to include furniture production. whilst its name is associated with teakwood, deesawat has incorporated alternative materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, synthetic rattan, batyline and sunbrella as well. due to continuous improvement as well as design development, the company has developed a strong foundation and foothold in the world market and will present their outdoor collection at the salone del mobile in milan in april 17th – 22nd of 2012 and at ICFF in new york may 19th – 22nd of 2012.

international furniture fair singapore / ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS) the international furniture fair singapore, held in conjunction with the ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS), began in 1981 and has since come to be regarded by industry experts as asia’s most prestigious furniture trade show. IFFS/AFS provides an effective marketing platform for regional companies to venture into the global market. as a testimony to the quality of the show, IFFS/AFS is the first asian-based international furniture fair to be accepted as a member of the elite union des foires internationales, a paris-based international authority on trade fairs. in addition, it is the only furniture trade event in singapore to be awarded the ‘approved international fair’ status by the singapore tourism board. IFFS/AFS is set to become even more comprehensive for the furniture players,with the addition of the inaugural deco asia and hospitality asia developed to expand the scope of the show.

  • It is funny that the article says they use “reclaimed teak” from plantations….but when asked the sales person at the TIFF show in Bangkok they confirmed its Burmese Teak and that it is no problem to export it to Europe. But Burmese Teak is illegal to export to Europe as far as I know.

    So I am really wondering what is going on with this company.
