His grandfather was a master Chula kitemaker, now Korakot Aromdee makes masterpieces of bamboo using the same fine materials and craftsmanship. His work includes large-scale sculptures, lighting, decorative accessories and architectural pieces.

I appreciate Korakot’s work, not only for its beauty, but for the way he makes bamboo fly up to the stratosphere of sophisticated style. And because he proudly flies the flags of Thai identity, community consciousness, and environmental awareness.

Korakot’s work is available through his website, at international design and interiors exhibitions, and in New York at Establishment, an innovative retail showroom/gallery in the Meatpacking District.
