Nong Chotipatoomwan



Nong Chotipatoomwan is a Bangkok-based designer with a desire to create better products and experiences with everyday objects. Her approach to design is a reflection that considers form with practicality, experiences, and an understanding of contemporary life. Trained as an industrial designer from RISD and RCA, her interest in creating holistic experiences has inspired her to work in fashion, furniture, lighting, and spatial design. Her graduation project 'Landing Space' has been long-listed for Dezeen Awards in 2018, shortlisted for the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation Award 2017 and she was featured on Sight Unseen as one of the ‘Talents to watch for 2017’.

The brief came right after I handed in my resignation,’ Chotipatoomwan explains. ‘As soon as I read it I immediately thought of mental health because people have been living in isolation and been stuck at home for so long. We’re just not used to being alone and separated, so it seemed an obvious thing to focus on.’ Subsequently, she became interested in creating a product that would relax people.
