THE STRAITS TIMES JULY 8 2017

“Affordable, chic and often blending traditional influences and modern designs, Thai brands have made their way into Singapore’s furniture and homeware market.

Savvy Singaporeans might have picked up a few Thai-designed items on their weekend jaunts to Bangkok, but now they no longer need to hop on a plane to get quality wares from the Land of Smiles.

In the past few years, at least 10 brands are being stocked by multi-label retailers here.

Many are brought in by Singapore fans who had chanced on these labels while on holiday, found them online or spotted them at furniture fairs.

Other Thai brands sold here include Qualy, an award-winning home accessories and kitchenware brand that is known for its witty designs; and Pana Objects, which makes simple and beautiful wooden pieces such as stationery holders.

Retailers say Thai designs are original, well-crafted and often utilise traditional techniques and materials.

Mr Alvin Tan, 34, owner of Bibliotek Design Store, says: “Thai brands can hold their own in the world of design. They have a seamless ability to combine modern aesthetics with traditional crafts such as woodworking and embroidery.”

While Thai design may have its own quirks, it generally taps into a popular style now: the pervasive Japanese minimalism trend. So the lines are clean and simple, wood is a dominant material and furniture is compact and multi-functional to cater to small apartment dwellers.

Qualy, which has an online store in Singapore and is stocked by retailers such as Naiise and etch&bolts, is the epitome of playfulness. It makes toilet brushes shaped like cherries, door stoppers that look like a resting dove and acorn-shaped containers which go by the name, Acorntainer.

Mr Yong says: “There’s a feel- good factor to their products. You sense happiness in their designs.”

For their quality, Thai products are also generally cheaper than European labels and popular furniture and homeware brands such as Crate & Barrel, Tokyu Hands or Muji at times.

Mr Shane Low, 35, a director at Becheras Holdings, which is the sole distributor of Qualy and Pana Objects, says: “What you are paying for is uniqueness. You can be proud that your door stopper or sponge holder is a conversation piece, unlike the many $2 door stoppers in your neighbours’ homes.”

Some Thai designers are already thinking big, even if they recently arrived in Singapore.

Interview with Teerachai, Design Director of Qualy Design:

The Last Log pencil sharpener
The Last Log pencil sharpener

1.       In this era, what do you look out for when designing stationery?

“The first thing when designing a stationary product is the design. Imagine walking into a stationery store or a stationery section, if your design does not stand out or wow the customer they would just walk pass it. After attracting their attention your product have meet their expectation. For example the stationery that they are looking for need to have great design and WORK as well .

2.       Is there a particular kind of design or tagline (eg “ideas happen everywhere” or other slogan) that appeals to the consumers?

“Inspirations”. Our brand concept is concerning the future of our planet and how we choose to act in our daily life. After the customer buys our product we don’t want it to stop there. We want the product to carry on the message and want the customer to forward that message to their close one. For example, “The Last Log” (Pencil Sharpener) sends a message that we should be very careful on what we are consuming and we should consume in just the right amount.

3.       What do you hope to give consumers through his design?

We want our customers to be happy and to receive a great experience when using our products. With every product, we try to add a story behind it, and we hope the customer feels that he or she is part of the story.
